The Sterling Police Department offers a fingerprinting service to the general public. This service is now available Monday-Friday 08:00am-4:30pm. Fingerprints are taken for employment purposes or to obtain certain licensures, such as a teaching license, nursing or insurance license. If needed, fingerprint cards are available at the police station. Persons should bring a photo ID, usually a driver’s license, for identification purposes.
A $10.00 service fee for the actual taking of the fingerprints by an officer is charged and may be paid at the reception window, where an officer will be called to take the fingerprints. However, there is no fee for individuals obtaining fingerprints for adoption, foster care, day care, EMT license, Police academy or employment with the schools. Please bear in mind that there will be a fee by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (state-wide check) and/or the Federal Bureau of Investigation (national check) for the background search.
