    Fingerprint Services

    There is a fee of $6.00 per fingerprint card. Many agencies require that you be printed on a card that has been provided to you. In the case you did not receive a card, the Public Records Detail will print you on a blank fingerprint card. In the case that the fingerprint card is rejected for a reason other than the quality of prints, the Public Records Detail is unable to refund the fee. A valid government issued ID is required to be fingerprinted.
