Live Scan Santee

Welcome to EZ LiveScan in Santee, California approved LiveScan Fingerprinting service. LiveScan fingerprinting has modernized the science of taking fingerprints. Reliable source for accessing background information for a variety of purposes. LiveScan digital submissions provide the quickest way to submit and process background checks. LiveScan technology allows digitally scanned fingerprints and related information to be submitted electronically to the FBI and Department of Justice within a matter of minutes and allows criminal background checks to be processed usually within 48 to 72 hours.

EZ LiveScan in Santee provides digital fingerprinting services that will allow you to get the data you need to make informed decisions. Our goal is to capture a true image so that the administrative process is as easy and efficient as possible.

Our work is approved by the San Diego County General Services Office for Livescan security clearances. The technology allows for a significantly shorter turnaround from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) or the California Department of Justice (DOJ). Law enforcement may be better able to identify criminal suspects, as well as provide background checks quicker.

Live Scan fingerprinting is a technological development of forensic science that makes it possible for a fingerprint to be taken electronically and sent to law enforcement for identification. Live scan fingerprinting is inkless and it captures the fingerprint digitally on a computer. The prints are then forwarded electronically to the FBI, DOJ or another authorized agency for a criminal background check. We are open 7 days a week. Come see us during the following hours:

LiveScan Testimonials

When our company was tasked with working on several local government buildings we were asked to have LiveScan fingerprinting done for all employees. Not only was Smogs N Tags convienent, but they were able to expedite the process. Amazing service.

Jack L.


After graduating college I finally received my dream job at a local middle school in Santee. I was surprised to learn that I needed to have a LiveScan completed before I was able to start working. I called a few places and Smogs N Tags was the only one who took the time to answer all of my questions.
