Fingerprinting Service


Persons who must be fingerprinted for various licenses and certifications can come to the Police Department and be electronically printed through the Live Scan system. Services are available Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm (hours may vary depending on availability). Appointment is necessary. To schedule an appointment, please call (510) 215-4400. 

The ECPD does not provide 'ink fingerprinting' services. Persons needing this service will have to look elsewhere. Many private companies offer this service.
