THE OMEGA LIVE SCAN PROCESS
Our system is convenient and approved and certified by the state of Florida. Once you come into our office your prints are electronically scanned (and photographs taken – if applicable). We have a 99.9% success rate. The prints are sent to FDLE as well as the applicable governing agency such as: AHCA, DCF, DBPR, etc. They are also sent to the employer listed on the application as it applies to your ORI Code. It typically takes only minutes to complete the process for a fast turnaround in our office that is open Monday through Friday with extended hours, Saturday and Sunday by appointment and mobile service available.
After submission to the FDLE, you can expect an abbreviated processing time of 24-72 hours. Our direct connection streamlines the process vs. other manual submissions. Our technology allows us to immediately address any errors or misprints at the time of service in order to avoid any delays. Reprints and photo adjustments are made on-site prior to submission for fast and reliable fingerprinting and live scan services. You can have confidence that all submissions are encrypted to provide secure services. Your privacy is very important to us and we take this very seriously. All transmissions of any nature to authorized government agencies are done so with the highest level of encryption.
