Fingerprint Service


Fingerprinting Appointments:

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office offers fingerprinting services to the general public.

We are able to fingerprint for non-criminal purposes including, but not limited to, adoptions, job applications, professional licensing, identification and immigration.

For all other types of fingerprinting, involving criminal cases, suspense files, probation, and/or interstate compacts, please call: 218-726-2372

Appointments are scheduled using our scheduling calendars found below. Appointment slots fill up fast, and applicants may have to schedule appointments weeks in advance.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office charges a fee of $25 - payable in check or exact change only - 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 FD-258 background cards. 

We provide two copies of these fingerprint cards with your fee. 



In emergency or to file a report, call 911.
