(PIKESVILLE, MD) – Citizens wanting their fingerprints taken for background checks or applicant requirements will need to find an electronic fingerprint capture location and will temporarily be unable to obtain those from Maryland State Police barracks, due to a change in requirements by the FBI.

Effective March 19, 2012, Maryland State Police barracks that have previously provided fingerprinting services to citizens will be unable to do so, at least temporarily. The FBI will no longer accept paper fingerprint cards. All fingerprints submitted to the FBI will need to be taken electronically.

Persons needing fingerprints can visit the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services website at and click on the “fingerprinting services” link beneath the “quick links” column. A list of electronic fingerprinting sites is located there.

Maryland State Police barracks are in the process of converting to electronic fingerprinting. That process will not be completed however, for at least several months.
