Citizen Fingerprinting Services

Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office
Support Services Bureau
- AFIS Division

Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office resumes citizen fingerprinting services.

Appointments are required to manage social distancing and can be made immediately online.

Fingerprinting is conducted at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Technical Services Building located at 4645 145th Avenue North in Clearwater, across from the Criminal Courts Complex.

Due to COVID-19 health concerns and consistent with applicable federal, state and local guidelines, in March 2020 the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office suspended citizen fingerprinting services for job applicants, background checks and concealed carry permit applications. Fingerprinting requires close personal contact between the person taking the prints and the person being fingerprinted and with the high number of cases and high percentage of positive cases it was imprudent and unsafe to continue this close personal contact.

Because of the significant reduction in the number of new positive cases and sustained reduction of percent positives under 5%, PCSO will limitedly resume citizen fingerprinting services for concealed carry permits, background checks and job applicants starting on Wednesday, September 9, 2020 between 8:00 a.m. and 3:50 p.m. Citizens will be required to schedule appointments and they will be required to wear masks and adhere to other personal safety best practices during the fingerprinting process.

We are pleased to resume this service for our citizens. To learn more about the citizen fingerprinting services and schedule an appointment, please visit our web site at: or call (727) 464-6032.
