Fingerprinting services are no longer available at San Diego Police facilities. Beginning July 1, 2005 the California Department of Justice requires that all applicant fingerprint submissions be transmitted electronically. Live Scan digital submissions provide the quickest way to submit and process fingerprint records. Complete the Fingerprint (Live Scan) Request Form, then take it to any of the Live Scan sites listed on the California Attorney General's web site.
