Fingerprinting: The Elbert County Sheriff’s Office provides the service of fingerprinting for a number of reasons. Fingerprints may be required for a recent conviction of a crime, for a real estate license, adoption, government clearances, job applications, teaching licenses, passports, as well as a variety of other needs. These prints are done by trained deputies and staff. Plan on at least an hour to be sure we are able to obtain quality readable prints. Prints are done only on Tuesday and Thursday between 9:00AM and 3:00PM and Saturdays between 9:00AM and 11:00AM. We ask that you provide the necessary information to include a state photo identification card and a blank fingerprint card given to you by the agency that requires the fingerprints. The fee for fingerprinting is $10.00. There is no fee for fingerprints associated with handgun permits as this is included in the permit fee.
