Earlier this year, the Department of Justice notified Maryland law enforcement agencies that they would no longer accept rolled ink fingerprint cards and agencies submitting fingerprints would have to transition to an electronic LiveScan fingerprinting system. Out of the 26 Maryland public locations with the LiveScan system, there were none located in Carroll County. With approved funding from the Carroll County Board of Commssioners, the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office was able to purchase one of these systems thereby reducing the inconvenience for both citizens and employers by creating a local location to get Federal and State fingerprints scanned.
We are pleased to announce our LiveScan electronic fingerprint scanner will be available to the public beginning July 17th.
HOURS OF OPERATION
Our hours of operation for fingerprinting will change effective August 14, 2012. The new hours will be Tuesdays, 9am thru 3pm. Businesses/Organizations with multiple applicants to be scanned are requested to call ahead to set up an appointment. For expedited Live Scan service, please complete, print and bring the PRE-REGISTRATION FINGERPRINT APPLICATION with you when you come to the Sheriff's Office to be fingerprinted..
WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING
Because these scans get sent directly to the State and/or FBI, we will need to collect these fees in addition to our fees at the time of the scan. These fees vary depending on the reasons for your fingerprinting. Click this FEE SCHEDULE for a breakdown of the various fees. At this time we can only accept Cash, Checks and Money Orders. If paying by check or money order, you will need to bring 2. One will be made payable to the Commissioners of Carroll County in the amount as designated by the FEE SCHEDULE. The other will be made payable to the Carroll County Sheriff's Office in the amount of $10.00 (rolling fee). If your organization has pre-registered with us they will be billed and there will be no charge to you at the time of the scan. To pre-register your business or organization please contact Dani Schubert at 410-386-2306.
We will still roll ink prints for anyone requesting it at a cost of $5.00 per card.
