The Sterling Police Department no longer offers a fingerprinting service to the general public. Fingerprints needed for employment purposes or to obtain certain licenses, such as a teaching license, nursing or insurance license within the state of Colorado will need to go through IdentoGO or Colorado Fingerprinting by appointment at https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cbi/updated-employment-background-checks. Go to the link and pick the purpose for your fingerprints, click on it, a link is then provided to the IdentoGO website or the Colorado Fingerprinting website where you can set up your appointment. You can call IdentoGO at 844-539-5539 (toll free) and Colorado Fingerprinting at 833-224-2227 (toll free) if you have any questions or for help with scheduling an appointment.
However, we do offer the service to anyone needing fingerprints for out of state employment/licenses or individuals whose employers supplied them with fingerprint cards. This service is available Monday-Friday 08:30am-4:30pm. A $10.00 service fee for the actual rolling of the fingerprints by an officer and may be paid at the lobby window, where our technician will be called to take the fingerprints. Persons should bring a photo ID, usually a driver’s license, for identification purposes. 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 as well.
If you have any questions please call Community Service Specialist Caitlyn McVey at 970-522-3512 ext 4220.
