Fingerprinting

PCSO

Fingerprinting Services

COVID-19

As of Monday, October 12, 2020, we will resume fingerprinting services with the following COVID-related restrictions:

  • Fingerprinting services will only apply to Polk County residents until further notice.
  • Both the PCSO member assigned to the fingerprinting duties AND the person being fingerprinted MUST wear a mask. The PCSO member doing the fingerprinting will also be wearing gloves. Paper masks for the person being fingerprinted will be provided by us if you do not have one.
  • Those requesting fingerprints will be asked if they presently have Covid-19 or have any Covid-19 symptoms to include fever, shortness of breath and/or persistent cough. If they do, fingerprinting services will be scheduled for some time after the duration of those symptoms. 

Each of the five PCSO substations are equipped to fingerprint citizens. However, PCSO is not certified to fingerprint for the Immigration and Naturalization Service – please call 813-931-3124 for information regarding that.
