The Lamar County Sheriff's Office is currently using LiveScan, an inkless electronic fingerprinting, which is electronically transmitted to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation or Department of Justice for completion of a criminal record check. The Live Scan technology replaces the process of recording an individual's fingerprint patterns through a rolling process using ink. Digitizing the fingerprints enables the electronic transfer of the fingerprint image data in combination with personal descriptor information in a matter of seconds.This method ensures that good prints are captured without the mess and inconvenience of ink.
