California Fingerprinting Solutions

California Department of Justice (CalDoJ) offers two channels of electronic submission - (1) Direct Connect for approved government agencies and private organizations (entities with an ORI) and (2) Peer Connect for authorized Private Service Providers (PSP) Sites. Anyone who will be fingerprinting someone for licensure, certification and/or employment purposes must be certified by CalDoJ (Penal Code section 11102.1). This process can take 90+ days. Once this is completed, you can purchase your livescan system and begin the process to establish an account and connection to CalDoJ. The entire process can take several months.
