Live Scan Fingerprinting
The Modesto Police Department provides this service to the general public
BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
Before the applicant can be fingerprinted, they must have the following:
A Live Scan form provided by their employer
A photo ID
The Modesto Police Department charges a fee of $10.00. This fee is only for the fingerprinting services
provided by the Modesto Police Department.
There may be additional fees (see below).
Some employers 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 you will only be charged the Modesto Police Department's $10.00 fee.
If the Billing Number field is left blank – you will be charged fees indicated by the Live Scan machine in addition to
the Modesto Police Department's $10.00 fee. The fees are based on your new employer’s AORI # (located on the upper left
hand corner of your Live Scan form) and the type of service indicated on your form – DOJ, FBI, or CHILD (These fields are
typically located near the bottom of the Live Scan form on the right hand side.)
Cash or Business Check only - make checks payable to "City of Modesto."
Monday - Thursday by appointment only.
Please call 209-572-9659 for an appointment.
If you are an employer and need to fax a form, please
send it to 209-523-4082.
