Why you should choose Livescan Fingerprints vs Name Check Results
Criminals may use a false name or an alias leading to a false positive result.
Common names, alias names, or maiden names can result in multiple hits, false hits, and no hit responses.
The Illinois State Police reports that name based checks are not accurate and that fingerprints are the only positive means of identification.
Fingerprints are unique to each individual, no two people are alike.
Responses to a fingerprint based inquiry are based on the fingerprint biometric ID.
Livescan Fingerprints eliminates errors and are searchable in the Criminal History Database.
