Fingerprint Services

The Escalon Police Department provides this service to the general public by APPOINTMENT ONLY.

Before the applicant can be fingerprinted, they must have the following:

1. A live-scan form or ink card provided by their employer/agency
2. Appointment
3. A photo ID


-Live Scan fingerprinting $27.00
-Ink card fingerprinting $41.00

OTHER FEES: Some agencies choose to have the Department of Justice bill them at the end of the month. If an employer has chosen this method of payment, there will be a Billing Number on your live scan form. If the Billing Number field has been completed by your employer/agency, you will only be charged the police department’s $27.00 fee.

If the Billing Number field is left blank, you will be charged fees indicated by the live scan machine in addition to the police department’s $27.00 fee. The fees are based on your employer’s AORI number (located on the upper left hand corner of your live scan form), and the type of service indicated on your form (DOJ, FBI, and/or CHILD ABUSE INDEX).

PAYMENT: Cash, Check (make checks payable to the City of Escalon), and Credit Card.

APPOINTMENTS: To make an appointment, please call (209)691-7314. Live Scan appointments are scheduled for Monday & Wednesday only. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, you will be asked to reschedule.
