What are the hours of operation?

Hours of operation vary-see schedule below. You may set-up an appointment by scheduling online through our appointment portal on the Schedule Appointment website. You may also schedule an appointment by calling 301-498-0092 and ask for the Records Unit.

The LiveScan fingerprinting service is performed at the City of Laurel Police Department located at 811 Fifth Street, Laurel, Maryland 20707.

  • Mondays: 9:30 am to 2:30 pm (on the half-hour)
  • Tuesdays: 11 am to 4 pm (on the hour)

Note: No fingerprinting on Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays, at this time.

To be fingerprinted, upon arrival you will need to fill out a required City of Laurel Police Department LiveScan Pre-Registration Application. However, to expedite matters, you may download the required Pre-Registration Application by clicking on the PDF link below. Print and fill out the form and bring it with you to your fingerprinting appointment, along with your payment and government-issued identification. Try to arrive 10 to 15 minutes early to complete the paperwork and payment. This will allow sufficient time for fingerprinting should you have difficult prints to capture.

Note: A percentage of the population have fingerprints that are difficult for the LiveScan machine to detect. Fingerprints can be affected by age or exposure to certain types of work such as construction or from prolonged exposure to various chemicals. If you have dry skin, please moisturize your hands well, for 24 to 48 hours prior to your appointment and hydrate by drinking plenty of water. This will improve the quality of your prints for easier detection. Hands must be washed just prior to prints being taken and cannot be moisturized after washing.
