Fingerprinting Services

The Loss Prevention Group, Inc. (LPG) Live Scan and Ink Fingerprinting Services Division is located in Downtown Oakland at 1814 Franklin Street, Ste 618, Oakland, CA. LPG employs six DOJ Certified Fingerprint Rollers, trained by active law enforcement officers. Since 2006, we have fingerprinted over 56,000 applicants for employment, volunteer work, licenses, certification, permits, and record reviews. We have the experience that you can trust!

For Live Scan Fingerprinting, LPG uses the latest technology from CrossMatch to digitally scan and transmit fingerprints electronically. Live Scan digital submissions provide the quickest way to submit and process background checks. Live Scan technology allows digitally scanned fingerprints and related information to be submitted electronically to the DOJ and FBI within a matter of minutes and allows criminal background checks to be processed usually within 72 hours.

LPG is also very experienced with ink-rolled fingerprinting. Typically ink fingerprinting is requested for applicants applying for jobs or licenses out of State. LPG provides the standard FBI Applicant card (FD-258), or you can bring in any ink-fingerprint card. LPG uses high-quality FBI approved law enforcement ink. LPG also has the ability to digitally capture applicant fingerprints and print on standard FBI Applicant cards (FD-258). This service is typically reserved for groups or applicant's in need of multiple FD-258 cards. Contact LPG for more information on this service.
