How do I get my fingerprints taken?

The Norwalk Police Department provides fingerprinting services for bona fide permanent Norwalk Residents for any reason OR only for Non-Residents that require fingerprinting as a condition of employment with a Norwalk company  with a company letter or their business is  located in Norwalk and requires a license.  A Non-Resident property owner or business owner are not eligible.  You MUST present a valid State of Connecticut driver license or Identification Card with a Norwalk address.  If you have moved to Norwalk, please follow all State DMV laws and properly change your address with them.  ALL fingerprinting is conducted by Online Appointment ONLY, No walk-in appointments accepted.  See the Steps below to be fingerprinted.  If assistance is needed, call the Identification Unit at (203) 854-3019 and leave a message for us to get back to you.

 

The State of CT has implemented a new procedure for fingerprinting that requires an Online Pre-Enrollment with the Connecticut Criminal History Request System (CCHRS) and a Service Code.  

 

STEP 1 -  You MUST first go to the State of CT CCHRS site – http://ct.flexcheck.us.idemia.io/cchrspreenroll (CLICK on LINK)  and enter your appropriate SERVICE CODE for your fingerprinting reason.

                  This SERVICE CODE will be provided by whomever is requiring you to get fingerprinted for a background check or License/Permit.  The SERVICE CODE is specific to each Town/City or Employer.

 

                NORWALK POLICE DEPARTMENT SERVICE CODES: (ONLY FOR NORWALK RESIDENTS OR BUSINESSES)

                You will then receive an Applicant Transaction Number (ATN) – Print out this transaction number and you MUST bring it to be fingerprinted

                WE CANNOT FINGERPRINT YOU WITHOUT THE APPLICATION TRANSACTION NUMBER – YOU WILL BE TURNED AWAY!
