The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office is now offering the Civil Live Scan System to a new sector. Private businesses, state agencies and other entities that submit an employment applicants fingerprints for the purpose of positively identifying prospective employees or agents are now able to access the system. This system will allow background checks to determine if applicants are eligible to hold positions involving children, the elderly or disabled. It also verifies if applicants have active warrants for arrest, have an arrest record or have been convicted of stalking, being a sex offender or any violent offenses.
Businesses interested in the Live Scan must first register through DPS. Once a business or agency has registered with DPS, activated an account, and scheduled applicants, applicants should be directed to submit their prints electronically by going to the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office.
To activate an account, contact Alan Davis with Louisiana Sheriff's Association at 225-214-0018.
