How Fingerprint Services Work

Fingerprint services require a prior appointment and are offered 8 am to 4 pm weekdays at the Washington Township RecPlex West, 965 Miamisburg-Centerville Rd. Township staff will take a digital image of fingerprints and send them to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI) for a records search. Results can take up to 30 business days. (This is  digital fingerprinting, not rolled. See information below for rolled.)


Residents of Centerville/Washington Township can receive fingerprinting services at a reduced price. BCI-State of Ohio Fingerprints cost $24 for residents and $45 for non-residents. FBI Fingerprints cost $48 for residents and $52 for non-residents. Fees are payable by check, VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

What to Bring with You

At the time of the appointment, residents will be asked to complete a brief form and provide a driver's license or state photo ID, along with proof of address if the primary identification does not show a correct address.

Other Types of Fingerprint Services

The township can't provide all types of fingerprinting services. If you've been given a card imprinted with small boxes for each fingerprint, then rolled fingerprints are required.

In that case, visit the Attorney General's website and enter your zip code for a list of current locations offering those services.
