IMPORTANT CHANGES

REGARDING FINGERPRINTING

EFFECTIVE MONDAY, MAY 11, 2020:

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office will resume fingerprinting services for non-criminal purposes. This service will be for critical sector employees/contractors and other professional licensing that fall under the guidance of the following link:

MINNESOTA CRITICAL WORKER DEFINITIONS

We will also consider other emergency requests on a case-by-case basis.

You MUST be a St. Louis County resident to obtain this service.

If you meet these qualifications, please call (218) 726-2008 to schedule an appointment.

 


Fingerprinting Appointments:

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.
