CCC-Live Scan Fingerprinting:

4 Easy Steps to Live Scan Fingerprinting

Effective August 1, 2010, Florida implemented important changes to ensure the safety of children who are dependent on the character of their caregiver(s). This new law requires Level II background screenings of job applicants, employees and volunteers who come in contact with children.

You can decrease the amount of wait time to receive your screening results and help decrease the need to re-screen, due to the rejection of inferior prints, by following the 4 easy steps provided below.

What is an OCA number and why do I need one to be fingerprinted?

In order to be fingerprinted using the Live Scan system, a valid OCA # will be required.  An OCA (Originating Agency Case number) is a DCF-issued tracking number that identifies who is requesting the background screening.  Live Scan fingerprints cannot be processed without this number.  The OCA # is typically 9-digits long, beginning with the 2-digit Circuit Number, followed by the 6-digit OCA and ending in the letter “Z.” 

Please obtain this number from the agency, employer, childcare provider or daycare facility requesting your background screening and bring it with you to your scheduled appointment. 

Please also verify in advance that the OCA # is registered for electronic fingerprinting.  If the employer needs to register their OCA #, please ask them to contact the local

DCF background screening office at (813) 558-1069 or (813) 558-1070.

Back to Questions

 

13.

What makes Live Scan different from hard copy prints?

Live Scan fingerprints are captured electronically, providing a cleaner and more accurate print than ink and paper.  Because they are also submitted electronically, background results are returned within days rather than weeks. 
 

Back to Questions

 

14.

How long does it take to get the results?

Background screening results are generally returned via email by DCF within 5 days after electronic fingerprint submission.  Please see the DCF website at http://www.dcf.state.fl.us/admin/backgroundscreening/ for more information.

 

Back to Questions

 

15.

How does the employer obtain the results?

DCF will return the background screening results via email to the contact person associated with the OCA #.  Please verify with the agency, employer, childcare provider or daycare facility requesting your background screening that the DCF has a valid email address on file for that OCA. 

If the employer has questions, please ask them to contact the local DCF background screening office at (813) 558-1069 or (813) 558-1070. 

 

Back to Questions

 

16.

What happens if my fingerprints can’t be processed by the Department of Children and Families?

  • You or the employer requesting your background screening will have to schedule another appointment by contacting our Live Scan fingerprinting unit at (727) 547-5700

  • There is no cost for this appointment; however you will need to provide the TCR #

  • The TCR # (Transaction Control Record Number) is issued by the DCF and typically begins with the letter “E” and is 20-digits long 

  • This number is required and indicates that the fingerprints are being submitted a second time 

  • Please obtain the TCR # from the childcare provider or daycare facility requesting your background screening 

 

Back to Questions

 

17.

May I begin working for a childcare provider or daycare facility before my results have been returned?

Amendments to state law effective August 1, 2010, require that applicants obtain Level II screening before they begin working directly with children. Please see the DCF website at http://www.dcf.state.fl.us/admin/backgroundscreening/ for more information on Level II screening requirements.  

 

Back to Questions

 

18.

I have been fingerprinted before.  May I use these results?

Background screening results are generally not transferable.  The prospective employer may require that you obtain current background screening results through fingerprinting.  Live Scan will quicken the process.
