FAQs - Fingerprint Services

Fingerprint services are available at the South Bend Police Department

The fee for fingerprinting services is $10.00 unless it is a Concealed Pistol License you are applying for which is included in your Concealed Pistol License fee.

If being fingerprinted for a Concealed Pistol License, we provide the cards. Otherwise you must provide your own fingerprint card. These cards can typically be obtained from the entity in which you are applying to.

Valid photo identification is required prior to being fingerprinted. The following are considered valid forms of identification:

  • State Identification Card
  • Driver’s License
  • Passport

An appointment is not required but strongly recommended. Please contact the South Bend Police Department to setup an appointment.  Please allow additional time during the appointment in the event other priority issues need attention by staff.
