Police Clerks are available at the West Fargo Police Department to fingerprint the public from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.


There is a $10 charge for fingerprinting.

The West Fargo Police Department accepts cash or checks or electronic payment for fingerprints. The electronic payment adds a $2 or 3% charge.


The West Fargo Police Department has electronic fingerprint capability for agencies in North Dakota requesting the prints. For example if you need to get printed for the North Dakota Board of Nurses, we are able to do electronic prints instead of ink fingerprints.

Please do not write on your fingerprint cards, if they were provided to you, until you speak with staff at the West Fargo Police Department.

Once the prints are completed, they will be signed and sealed for you to take.
