Public and/or Charter School Contractor, Subcontractor of Vendor and their Employees must have Fingerprint Clearance Cards per ARS 15-512. If your organization falls under any Arizona Revised Statute requiring a Fingerprint Clearance Card then Arizona Livescan is your first step in the process. The Fingerprint Clearance Card background check process not only involves a state-level background check, but a federal one as well. The law states that if the contractor provides services directly to pupils without the supervision of a certificated employee they need a fingerprint clearance card. If you or your organization have any questions regarding whether or not you are required to have a Fingerprint Clearance Card or about the type of background check that is performed please contact the Arizona Department of Public Safety at 602-223-2279.

If you are at all familiar with the Fingerprint Clearance Card (FCC) issued by the Department of Public Safety (AZ) then you might have heard about Identity Verified Prints or IVPs. They are only for people applying for certification throug the AZ Department of Education, charter school instructors or tutors and teacher preparation programs (all mandated by legislation). It’s very important that IVPs be completed properly to avoid delays in your application. Once your application, fingerprint card (that’s where we come in) and your money order (made payable to DPS) are mailed into DPS they will begin a fingerprint-based background check. If your clearance is approved, you will be issued a Fingerprint Clearance Card with an IVP number on it. When your FCC expires in six years you will not need to send in a new set of fingerprints with your application for renewal. Arizona Livescan offers digital fingerprinting; AZ DPS processes the FCC Application and issues the FCC. Questions? Please call us at 602-246-3444.

Because fingerprint clearance cards are processed through AZ DPS we have no way to let you know (sorry); however, there may be a general time frame you can expect to get them back. The best way to know is to contact them directly to ask! They can be reached at 602-223-2279. Many of our customers come here already having their money order made out to DPS, get their fingerprints rolled by us (DPS does not offer this service) and then drive to the DPS Applicant office at 2320 N 20th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85005 to hand deliver their application packets. We charge $19.99 for fingeprinting. If you have the time, I do recommend hand delivering it. Why? Because there have been times when the mail was lost or the card was bent in the mail. It doesn’t happen often, but it is a concern. Also, our fingerprint technicians will review your fingerprints for accuracy. Rejected fingerprints will result in a delay of your fingerprint clearance card. Come to Arizona Livescan–Fingerprinting it’s all we do!
