Fingerprints

Fingerprinting Services


In conjunction with the State of Michigan, the Rochester Police Department has partnered with Identix Incorporated to offer fingerprinting services. This partnership is due to newly-instituted requirements that most fingerprints be submitted electronically to the State of Michigan and the FBI.
