CJIS Livescan

Livescan provides for the electronic capture and transmission of arrest and applicant data and fingerprints to the Central Criminal Records Exchange (CCRE) at Virginia State Police. This data both checks and updates Virginia’s Criminal History (CCH) and Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS) in an automated manner.  Identification information is returned electronically to the Livescan agency that requested it.

Of the 220 Livescan systems in 150 agencies in Virginia, two-thirds transmit arrest information and one-third transmit applicant requests electonically to VSP. These numbers are continuing to grow due in part to legislation regarding applicant requests as well as a marked reduction in prices of Livescan equipment.

An agency wishing to submit criminal arrests and/or applicant requests to VSP electronically must contact VSP personnel prior to making a purchase - please see the General Livescan FAQ for contact details. Information regarding equipment prices and submission agreements are available on request to qualified agencies.
