What security training and certification do Live Scan vendors complete in order to submit fingerprints to the DOJ?
The State Bar has no authority and involvement with the security training and certification of Live Scan vendors. California law requires any individual who rolls fingerprints manually or electronically for licensure, certification and/or employment purposes to be certified by the state Department of Justice (Penal Code section 11102.1). For more information go to the California Department of Justice website.
*The fingerprinting deadline falls on Sunday, December 1, 2019. Please note that Active attorneys who still have not complied by day’s end on Monday, December 2, 2019, will be enrolled as Involuntarily Inactive effective December 3, 2019
