  • Appointments will be scheduled Wednesday through Friday
  • The applicant fingerprint cards that we offer are the FD-258. FD-258 are the standard applicant fingerprint card for most situations (sometimes federal positions require a different card which should be mailed directly to the applicant). 
  • The cost for up to four fingerprint cards is $10.00 as long as the cards are all for the same entity.  If you need two cards for one entity and one card for another entity the cost will be $20.00.  

 If you have specific questions, please call the Detention staff at 1-406-843-5369.


  • Don't put lotion on prior to arrival for fingerprints since this may create smudging.
  • Please remove any band aids if they are on for minor cuts.
  • Notify the Detention staff is your fingers or joints are painful.
