If you appear in court, the judge may order you to have your fingerprints and photograph taken. This is usually done when you are summons or ticketed (promise to appear) into court, and were not booked directly into jail. Because you did not go to jail your fingerprints and photograph were never taken for these charges.
You should receive paperwork from the court that will give you the date you have been ordered to have the prints and photo taken. You have ten days from that date to get this done. Court ordered fingerprints can be done at the Justice Center, Room 105, Monday through Friday, 9am to 3pm, except observed court holidays. You can also get court ordered fingerprints done at our main office located at 215 Rice Street, Grand Junction, Monday through Friday, 9am to 4pm. There is no charge for court ordered fingerprints and booking photos. Note, there generally is a longer wait time at the main office location for court ordered fingerprints.
Requirements: All adults must present a government issued I.D. or have a previous booking photo on file with our agency. Juveniles may present a driver's license, birth certificate, student school I.D. if it has a picture, or a parent's driver's license as long as the last name is the same. A juvenile's parent or legal guardian does not need to be present to process court ordered booking photos and fingerprints.
Once the fingerprints and photograph have been taken the court paperwork will be filled out by our agency personnel and a copy will be provided to you for your records. The original will be sent back to the court/judge by our staff.
