  • Fingerprints

    Live Scan fingerprinting is an electronic fingerprinting method used to check criminal history information for identification, employment and licensing. It works by matching fingerprints and other identifying information to existing law enforcement agency electronic data.

    Fingerprints are commonly used by law enforcement agencies throughout the USA to process a Criminal Background check for employment purposes. Louisiana is a "closed state" and there is no third party Criminal Background check for employment.

  • Background Checks

    We offer many types of background checks, including: FBI IdHS and EDO, Louisiana Nonlicensed Persons and Licensed Ambulance Personnel, and Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE)

    The Louisiana State Police Bureau of Criminal Identification and Information (LSP Bureau) is the state’s designated repository that stores criminal history record information (CHRI) in the Louisiana Computerized Criminal History (LACCH) database. The state record repositories are the primary source of CHRI maintained at the FBI.

  • Notary Public

    We offer Louisiana Notary Public Services and Apostille services.

    Notaries in Louisiana are authorized to make inventories, appraisements, partitions, wills, protests, matrimonial contracts, conveyances, and, generally, all contracts and instruments in writing.
