Fingerprinting Service

Effective Wednesday, August 23, 2023, the Middleton Police Department will provide fingerprinting services to individuals who need to be fingerprinted for job applications, background checks, or any other required purpose.   A valid government-issued photo ID is required for fingerprinting.  


We provide this service every Wednesday from 9am to 11am. Appointments are appreciated and can be made online or by calling (608)824-7361.  Walk-ins are also welcome.


The department provides both, the Live Scan fingerprint machine to digitally capture fingerprints, and ink fingerprinting on standard FBI FD-258 cards, unless you have a specific card that needs to be completed.  We will primarily utilize the Live Scan machine unless specified.  


  • $10 per card
  • Cash, check or credit/debit card are accepted.


If you are in need of this service outside of the days and times that we provide, you can check with other area law enforcement agencies or visit to search for other non-law enforcement options.
