Additional Information

Fingerprint Rejections and Reasons

Fingerprints are rejected for two reasons:

 1. Poor Quality Fingerprints. Rejections due to poor fingerprint quality require that the applicant be re-fingerprinted. The new fingerprints will then be resubmitted at no additional cost.

2. Incorrect Data: Livescan operators are required to enter all data from the “Request for Live Scan Service" form (BCII 8016A) provided and completed by the applicant. Any rejection due to invalid or incorrect data requires resubmission. In these cases the applicant must pay an additional rolling fee ($22) and any additional level of service fees.

On all resubmissions the applicant must have (1) the rejection letter from DOJ and (2) a new “Request for Live Scan Service" form (BCII 8016) form, complete with full and accurate information. The rejection letter contains information necessary to complete the Livescan process.

Status of Fingerprints

The Fremont Police Department does not receive the results from any applicant fingerprint submissions. Applicants should check with the agency or organization that requested the background check. Please allow at least 7 days for any status inquiry. Generally, results are sent electronically to the applicant’s requesting agency, but in some cases organizations require the results to be sent via regular mail. Request that require the manual processing of criminal history information, such as those involving pre-1945 cases, also may delay the reporting of results.

Applicants can call the DOJ 24-hour Automated Telephone Service at (916) 227-4557 to check their fingerprint submission status. Applicants will need:

  • Date of Birth
  • The 10-digit Automated Transaction Identifier (ATI). The ATI number is located at the bottom of the “Request for Live Scan Service" form (BCII 8016) and is formatted as follows: 1 LETTER; 3 NUMBERS; 3 LETTERS and 3 NUMBERS.
