Live Scan fingerprinting is a technique used to electronically capture fingerprints for the purpose of conducting criminal history background checks. The VCCCD Police Department conducts Live Scan fingerprinting services for those who are applying for employment, volunteer work, or coursework within the VCCCD. The Police Department does not offer Live Scan services to the general public. For a list of live scan providers who offer services to the public, visit the California Department of Justice's search page.
Live Scans may be completed at the Moorpark College and Oxnard College police stations, as well as the Police Services office at Ventura College. For your convenience, you may complete a Live Scan at a college separate from the college at which you will be assigned. For example, you may complete a Live Scan at Ventura College even if your assignment is at Oxnard College. Assignments at the District Administrative Center (DAC) will need to be completed at one of the three colleges, as Live Scan services are not provided at the DAC.
Live Scans are free of charge and by appointment only.
Live Scan Identification Requirement
All Live Scans require two forms of valid, unexpired identification. The two most common forms of identification are:
- A valid government-issued photo identification (common forms of identification include a state identification card, driver license, or a U.S. Passport)
- A Social Security Number (proof of card not required)
In the event you are unable to provide one of the two common forms of identification listed above (e.g. never been issued a state identification card or never been issued a Social Security Number), here is a list of Acceptable Forms of Identification. If you are unable to provide any of the primary forms of identification listed on the Acceptable Forms of Identification document, you must also provide two supplemental documents in addition do your secondary form of identification. For questions regarding these identification requirements please email the Police Services office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Insufficient identification will cause your Live Scan appointment to be canceled or rescheduled.
