Fingerprinting is available to obtain professional licenses, concealed handgun permits, and various legal reasons. The department does not fingerprint for immigration. Printing is done Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. and on Saturday, 8:30-11:30 a.m.


Portland residents are fingerprinted for free. Non-residents may obtain fingerprints for $10 for the first two cards and $5 for each additional card. You must provide your own cards and a picture ID.

Any cards that are rejected due to the quality of the prints will be reprinted free of charge. All other reason(s) for rejection will be subject to the usual fees described above.

Print-A-Kid Cards

Portland police officers provide free fingerprinting services to children ages 5 to 12 using the Print-A-Kid fingerprint card. We do not provide child photographs or ID cards for citizens.
