Often, local police departments and sheriff offices do fingerprint cards for employers. Call to make an appointment for noncriminal fingerprinting and find out what identification documents you need to bring with you. Some agencies also require you to provide your own FD-258 card. These are available from retailers such as Amazon.com. Ask if there’s a fee for making a fingerprint card and what methods of payment you can use. Fees can range from $5 to $70, depending on the method used to collect your fingerprints.

To find other locations that may be more convenient, try an online search such as the one available on MyFBIReport.com, which lists fingerprinting agencies and their contact information by state.
