Additional Information

Hands should be clean, without bandages or broken skin. If you have an injury which prevents you from rotating your arm or wrist, please wait until you can do so. During the winter season or if you have especially dry hands, using water-based lotion prior to fingerprinting can help. Without a wait or exceptional circumstances, fingerprinting should take about 10-15 minutes.
