Why fingerprint?

Fingerprinting has always been the most accurate method of positively identifying an individual. Law Enforcement has relied upon the science of fingerprinting and fingerprint identification for many years.

Today’s technology now affords private entities the same benefits of this science and CLS Background Investigations can bring it to you.

How does it work?

  • Make an appointment with a licensed CLS Live Scan Technician.
  • Your fingerprints are electronically captured onto our state of the art Live Scan System.
  • Prints are then digitally transmitted to the Illinois State Police and FBI for processing.
  • Results are generally returned in 24-48 hours and submitted to the requesting entity.

A number of vocations and state issued licenses require fingerprint submissions. These include, but are not limited too, the following:

  • Massage Therapist
  • Humane Euthanasia
  • Security
  • Private Detective
