Background Resources, Inc.


Background Resources is a licensed Livescan fingerprinting vendor through the Illinois State Police.  Our Livescan fingerprinting services allows us to capture fingerprints on a scanner, take a photo and send the information electronically to the Illinois State Police for processing.

Results are typically returned within 48 to 72 hours to the licensing bodies within the State of Illinois Department of Professional Regulations.

Employers may also utilize us to capture fingerprints for potential hires, but would have to be set up through their own portal within the Illinois State police in order to have the fingerprint results returned.  This only applies to State and FBI results.
