Can I get my fingerprints done at the Police Department?

Yes, but only during certain hours, if no arrestee is being booked/fingerprinted at that time, and if appropriate personnel is available. Subject to these conditions, the Ocean Springs Police Department will do public fingerprinting (for employment, licensure, etc.) during these hours:

  • Mondays: 10 am to 11 am
  • Tuesdays: 10 am to 11 am
  • Thursdays: 10 am to 11 am
  • Fridays: 10 am to 11 am
  • No public fingerprinting is available on holidays when the Records Office is closed.
  • Times are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances.

The cost is $15 for the first card and $5 for each additional card for the same individual. A valid photo ID is required.

The Records Office accepts only EXACT CHANGE and only CASH or MONEY ORDERS. We also do not accept any bill higher than $20. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Notice: Ocean Springs Police Department is not affiliated with Fieldprint or any other third-party scheduler or payment processor for public fingerprinting (for licensure, employment, etc). Ocean Springs Police Department receives the public fingerprinting fee only in person and at the time of service. We do not make appointments for this service.
