Fingerprinting & Background Checks


The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office provides fingerprinting Services to the public. This service is provided by our Corrections staff at the Jefferson County Jail at 81 Elkins Rd. Port Hadlock. The most common current fingerprinting is provided by use of a "Live Scan" system. This system does not use ink and prints are captured on a glass scanner screen. Ink fingerprinting services are also provided as needed.

For information on how to obtain fingerprints, please review our Fingerprinting Procedures.

Fingerprinting hours are:
Tuesday: 3:00 to 8:00 pm
Thursday: 10:00 am to 12:00 pm OR 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
