Electronic Fingerprint Scanning System

[styled_image image=”×300.jpg” align=”right” w=”225″ h=”300″ link=”” lightbox=”true” alt=”Fingerprinting” group=””]The Parkersburg Police Department has an Electronic Fingerprint Scanning System. It employs digital technology to capture the prints and transfer them onto a fingerprint card.

This system uses the standard FBI 10-print blue applicant card. The person being fingerprinted will have to acquire these cards and provide them to the department. Normally, the business that is requiring the background check will provide these cards to you.


The Parkersburg Police Department offers background check fingerprinting to the public Monday – Friday, 8:00am to 4:00p.m. Please call Evidence Technician Keith Roberts at 424-8444 to schedule an appointment.

There is a $15 fee for use of this service.
