Fingerprint service

Share by emailShare by email


Members of the public sometimes require their fingerprints to be taken for a number of reasons, including:

  • When applying for a visa
  • When looking to foster or adopt a child
  • When looking to work in schools
  • If you have worked overseas and require checks to be carried out by the country you have worked in to ensure you have no criminal convictions when applying for certain jobs in the UK.

Our fingerprinting service

Nottinghamshire Police offers a finger printing service during office hours at its Force Headquarters, where reception staff can take fingerprints by advanced booking only.

The requesting agency will provide all documentation to let you know what additional information you will need to bring with you.
