How do I get my Fingerprints taken?

Fingerprinting services, for any purpose, are provided ONLY for bona fide permanent NORWALK RESIDENTS. 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 prior to getting fingerprinted.


We will only fingerprint Non-Residents as a condition of employment with a Norwalk Company but you MUST bring a letter from the Company on their letterhead that includes your name and purpose of fingerprinting as proof. We will also fingerprint a Non-Resident Business Owner that requires fingerprinting to meet a license requirement. A Non-Resident property owner is not eligible.
