The Sheriff's Office provides fingerprinting service to county residents as well as those that work within the county. If you need an FD-258 or SF-87 fingerprint card completed for a required fingerprint background check for whatever reason, we can assist.
Please come to the lobby of the Sheriff's Office on Tuesdays and Thursdays between the hours of 9:00am to 4:30pm. We will assess your needs and, if we can assist, we will send you across the parking lot to Treasurer's Office to pay a $10 fingerprinting fee. We can provide you as many cards as you need. Note: This is done on a computer system using laser scanning; no ink is used. Typically, this process takes 20 minutes or less; however, there may be occasions where it will take a bit longer due to the Livescan machine being in use.
If you have further questions, please submit them from our Contact Page Web Form. Please make sure to provide an email address and/or phone number for a response; otherwise we will have no way to contact you back.
