Do you need to be fingerprinted?
The Food & Beverage Association offers fingerprinting services for Live Scan. Please make an appointment in order to receive undivided attention.
With Live Scan fingerprinting there is no ink and no mess. We roll your finger over a silicon pad, and your print is digitally recorded into a computer. The computer then encrypts and sends your prints to the appropriate law enforcement agency.
Fingerprinting services are usually available Monday - Friday during normal business hours. However, we suggest you call us at (619) 228-2291 to book your appointment.
