When Will I Receive My Results?
The participant is fingerprinted and the images are transmitted electronically immediately to FDLE (Florida Dept of Law Enforcement). State and Federal criminal record results will be electronically transmitted to the Department of Children and Families (DCF) Background Screening Office. DCF will send final results to the employing facility either electronically or by mail. In some cases, the participant may be required to return for reprinting (at no charge) if the images are unclear. Results are now to be retrieved by the provider on the DCF website---you must set up an account so that you can print resutls directly from the DCF website and usually within 12 hours of the LIVESCAN being completed.
