Livescan is a method of taking fingerprints using some specialized electronics hardware. No ink, no smudged prints, instant digitization... sure makes life easier for LEOs (and big brother!). In Davis, you may require a Livescan background check if you take part in certain programs (like the Citizens' police academy or various primary/secondary teaching internships) or apply for certain jobs. You can also get a livescan against your will should you run into trouble with the law. When they take your prints for a background check, they'll send them off to the California Department of Justice and/or the FBI and scan them against their databases. If there are no matches and your fingerprints aren't otherwise required, they are destroyed.
