The personnel assigned to the Front Desk of the Irvine Police Department are trained to provide Livescan and ink fingerprinting services to residents and visitors to the City of Irvine during scheduled hours of operation.  

As of April 10, 2012, all fingerprinting services are by appointment only.

All appointments are scheduled on a "first come first served" basis. If you miss your appointment, you must schedule a new appointment date and time.

We apologize for the inconvienence, but we cannot accept bills over $50. Fingerprinting hours are subject to change based on availability.

We do not process fingerprints for the Immigration & Naturalization Service (INS) for U.S. Citizenship. The INS has fingerprinting locations designated for this service.
