Where should I get my Live Scan (fingerprints) done?

Placer County Sheriff’s Office performs Live Scans by appointment only on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. For an appointment call 530-889-7800. For the Tahoe City substation, call 530-581-6301.

Most local law enforcement agencies also provide Live Scan services for their residents, or you may use a private Live Scan provider. Important- you must bring our Live Scan form to your Live Scan provider. The California Department of Justice will forward your Live Scan results directly to us. 

Live Scan fees cannot be refunded if your application is denied.
