What is Live Scan?
Live Scan is an inkless and electronic technology, it capture fingerprints in a digitized format and then transmitting to the state central repository “Michigan State Police” (MSP), Bureau of Identification (BOI) for processing over a Virtual Private Network (VPN). Once received at the BOI for processing, the inquiry can then be forwarded to the FBI electronically for processing. All of this occurs within minutes and results in a biometric identification of an individual with little or no human intervention. The fingerprinting process results will take approximately 24-72 hours.
