The cost of fingerprinting is $10.00 per fingerprint card for Orangetown residents and $20.00 per fingerprint card for non-residents. Proof of an Orangetown residence is required to get the $10.00 per card fee. Acceptable forms of payment are cash or a money order payable to the Town of Orangetown.

Fingerprint cards will not be returned. You must have the fingerprint cards completely filled out prior to being fingerprinted. You must have an envelope addressed to the final recipient with proper postage. All required paperwork and fees will be placed in this envelope along with the completed fingerprint cards. The envelope will be sealed at that time and the Orangetown Police Department will mail it on your behalf. The Orangetown Police Department will not be responsible for improper postage, incomplete or illegible addresses or any items that you fail to place in the envelope at the time you are fingerprinted.
