Fingerprint requests

Citizens sometimes need to be fingerprinted for non-criminal purposes, such as obtaining a passport or concealed carry firearms permits. The Identification Division of our department will fingerprint a citizen of Matagorda County for a small fee of $10. This service is done by appointment only. To schedule an appointment email the ID Division or call 979/245-8500 and ask for them.
