With Del Mar Live Scan offered inside his Piazza Carmel Postal Annex location, owner Kirk Krikorian has made an identifiable mark on fingerprinting services in North County. Since opening in 2006, Del Mar Live Scan has become one of the main sources for the background check process required by law for many professions. Del Mar Live Scan replaces black ink fingerprinting with a digital scan of your fingerprints.

A Carmel Valley resident since 1995, Krikorian had a long, 32-plus year career as an insurance executive before deciding he wanted to change careers, opening up the Postal Annex branch 10 years ago.

“This has become one of the top producing Postal Annexes in the whole county,” Krikorian said of the busy location and “wonderful” community.

Five years ago Krikorian developed the Live Scan concept to give Carmel Valley and surrounding areas a convenient resource as fingerprinting is required by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI for background checks in numerous professions, including teachers, school volunteers, nurses, military applicants, contractors, CPAs and more.

“There was a definite need for a local place to do fingerprinting and since I owned the Postal Annex it was an ideal merge,” Krikorian said. “Fingerprinting is done in a professional, business environment.”

Certified technicians complete the fingerprinting work and prints are sent to the DOJ, FBI and the Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) if applicable.

“People really appreciate the service they get from us, we’re really particular when it comes to service,” said Krikorian. “We want to make everyone feel special when they walk into the store.”

Del Mar Live Scan accepts walk-ins, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Krikorian said they can be open for extended hours to accommodate a customer’s busy schedule by calling (858) 342-2389. They also offer mobile fingerprinting services, at no additional charge for groups of five or more within a five-mile radius. For more information, visit Address: Piazza Carmel, 3810 – 3890 Valley Centre Drive San Diego, CA 92130.
