Important Note About Fingerprinting Results

ESD 112 uses a Livescan system (digital fingerprints) to scan fingerprints. If your fingerprints are of good quality, live-scan reduces the turnaround time to obtain the results. If your fingerprints are of poor quality we cannot get a satisfactory result, and the prints are rejected by the Washington State Patrol (WSP). Prints are of poor quality if you have worn or fine ridges in your prints. We cannot do anything about that. If prints are rejected for poor quality, we will reprint up to two times free of charge. If quality prints cannot be obtained after the second reprint attempt, you will have to travel to the WSP Criminal Records Division in Olympia, WA where WSP takes and guarantees your prints.

The WSP recommends persons with worn/fine ridge detail be fingerprinted using the ink-and-roll method with retabs as necessary. Printer’s ink is more effective for recording very fine ridge detail than digital fingerprinting. This method is available at the Clark County Law Enforcement Center.

If you are concerned about worn prints, please let the fingerprint technician know before your prints are taken. We cannot refund the fingerprinting fee once we have submitted prints electronically.
