WHO NEEDS LIVE SCAN?

- School employees including principals, teachers, office workers, instructional (classroom) assistants, bus drivers, and custodians

APPLICANT GUIDELINES FOR A LIVE SCAN
|OBTAIN A REQUEST FOR LIVE SCAN SERVICE|
Prior to scheduling your Live Scan appointment, you must obtain a Request for Live Scan Service (BCII 8016) form (except childcare licensing applicants-see below) from the employer or agency. SCCOE Live Scan Fingerprint Unit accepts Requests for Live Scan Service forms from any employer or agency approved for Live Scan by the DOJ (provided the form’s information is complete). Please be aware that the SCCOE Fingerprint Live Scan Unit does not issue forms for any employer or agency (including the SCCOE). It is the applicant’s responsibility to obtain the appropriate form(s) from employer(s)/agencies.
|School Employee Applicants|

In such cases, the second REQUEST FOR LIVE SCAN SERVICE form will be provided to you by the Credential Services Unit at the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) upon submission and completion of required documents.
|Community Care Licensing Applicants|
This form will also automatically request a Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) check if needed. The Child Abuse Central Index name check is an additional background check required for individuals associated to any facility that cares for children. This requirement became effective January 1, 1986. If the CACI check is required, an exemption cannot be granted until this portion of the background check is also cleared. Effective January 1, 1999, the Department of Justice provides CBCB with notification of any subsequent incidents of child abuse after the initial clearance.
|All Other Applicants|
All other applicants for state licensing or permits for occupations and positions such as Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Notary Public, Nurse, Pharmacist, Real Estate, Social Worker, and Stockbroker should obtain a REQUEST FOR LIVE SERVICES form from their employer or agency representative (i.e., public employer, regulatory agency, state board, etc.).
