All Cheshire residents and individuals employed by, or seeking employment with, a business in the Town of Cheshire, may come to the Cheshire Police Department and have their fingerprints taken. Our hours are Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on any non-holiday. There is a $5.00 fee for fingerprinting services and valid photo identification is required. Each session takes approximately 15-20 minutes and the $5.00 fee will be waived for Pistol Permit applications and Child I.D. fingerprinting services.
Fingerprints will only be taken when a complete application packet is ready to be turned in.
