About Us

Patricia V. Richardson, Owner

Six Sigma Green Belt Certified | Certified Notary Signing Agent | Certified Livescan Fingerprinting Technician

About: Headliner


We can change our names or alter our appearance, but fingerprints are forever. Fingerprints are a constant in our lives from the day we’re born. And, since no two people have exactly the same fingerprints – not even identical twins – they provide a unique form of identification.

Essential Fingerprints is a privately owned mobile fingerprinting company, servicing Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties and the surrounding vicinities which encompass South Florida. We are unique in that we come to you!


We originally started out as a freelance service.  In 2001, we became known as 365 LiveScan Fingerprinting and Notary Services. After reorganization, Patrica V. Richardson recently introduced Essential Fingerprints.

We are a Livescan Service Provider who have voluntarily chosen to have our device (equipment) and electronic fingerprint data submissions evaluated by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to verify compliance with both FDLE and Federal Bureau of Investigation regulations and standards.

We look forward to talking with you personally, to assist with your fingerprinting and notary needs. Please call now to schedule a time that is convenient!
