For the General Public
The Ann Arbor Police Department no longer provides fingerprinting services to the general public. Fingerprinting services for background checks related to employment, concealed weapons licenses, adoption or visa/immigration can be obtained at the following locations:
Court Ordered Fingerprints:
If you have been ordered by the 15th District Court to have your fingerprints taken as the result of a case for which you have appeared before the court. Follow these steps to complete this process:
Bring all required paperwork that you received from the court with you to the Ann Arbor Police Department in the Justice Center.
Parking around the Justice Center is very limited. When entering the building you are required to go through Security, which involves going through a metal detector and leaving your cell phone in a locked locker. Please allow extra time.
Don’t wait until the day of or day before your court appearance to have your fingerprints taken. Due to operational considerations at the police department you may not be able to be fingerprinted at the particular time that you stop in. You may have to wait or reschedule.
Advise the employee working at the Police Front Desk on the 2nd Floor of the Justice Center that you have been ordered to have your prints taken by the court.
At any point in time if you are advised that no one is available to process your fingerprints ask to speak to the Lieutenant or senior Sergeant on duty.
If the Lieutenant or Sergeant is the individual who advises you that no one is available at that time to process your fingerprints, make arrangements with the supervisor to return at a later time so that someone can be scheduled to process your fingerprints.
If you have any other questions contact the Court, Ann Arbor Police Duty Command, or Ann Arbor Police Administration. Police Duty Command can be reached at 734-794-6921.
