Fingerprinting (LiveScan)

Fingerprinting is offered by the Sheriff’s Office at the Michael E. Kobza Hall of Justice. You MUST have government issued photo identification showing your date of birth with you. 

If you need electronic (LiveScan) submission of your fingerprints for a State and/or Federal background check, such as for teaching, you must provide the proper form from the organization requesting prints. This form includes Purpose Code and Requesting Agency Identifier for the organization. This data ensures the proper fee is charged, and the response is directed to the correct organization. We cannot provide these codes for you. 

Fingerprint Fees

  • Livescan Fingerprinting: $75
  • Fingerprints on a MI-R008 card or FBI card (Expungements, Name Change, Liquor License, Silencer): $18
