The Flagstaff police department now has the electronic scanning equipment for fingerprints, which is 30% more accurate than traditional fingerprints.  Unfortunately, we do not have the funding to upgrade our equipment at this time; therefore Human Resources will no longer be doing fingerprint renewals effective July 2012. 

HR will temporarily continue to run volunteer prints and specific new hire prints.


The Flagstaff Police Department is  open 7 days a week to accommodate fingerprint renewal requests and are centrally located by the sawmill shopping area on Butler.  Fee:  $7.00 (rolling print fee) + $67.00 (Clearance card fee) Hours:  7am-7pm, Monday-Sunday  Phone:  928.214.2530


How can I obtain an application packet for a renewal?

Fingerprint Clearance Card?

You may obtain an application packet from your school site, effective

September 1, 2012. Until then, Human Resources will keep packets

In the HR office, and will distribute first come/first serve.  You can also request a packet directly from DPS by either calling (602) 223-2279 or faxing your request to (602) 223-2947. DPS office hours are Mon. through Fri. /8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


If you will be working in the education field (public or charter) and you are required to obtain a Fingerprint Clearance Card or if you will be doing student teaching or tutoring you will need to obtain an “Identity Verified Print” (IVP) Fingerprint Clearance Card, not the regular Fingerprint Clearance Card. When requesting an application packet please make sure you specify that you need the “IVP” application packet.
