The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office charges a fee of $25 - payable in check, certified check, and money order (or via credit card only at the Duluth Office) - and requires a valid photo I.D. at the time of fingerprinting.
Our LIVESCAN® fingerprinting device uses an entirely ink-less & digital technology, and prints on federal background cards.
We provide two copies of these fingerprint cards with your fee.
