Several locations in Tucson and Pima County offer public fingerprinting for licensing, employment, or other purposes. Individuals will need to provide a fingerprint clearance card. The Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) provides the following information on how to get an application packet for an initial or renewal Fingerprint Clearance Card:
“You may obtain an application packet from your employer or you may request a packet directly from DPS by either calling (602) 223-2279 or faxing your request to (602) 223-2947. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. If you will be working in the education field (public or charter) and you are required to obtain a Fingerprint Clearance Card or if you will be doing student teaching or tutoring you will need to obtain an “Identity Verified Print” (IVP) Fingerprint Clearance Card, not the regular Fingerprint Clearance Card. When requesting an application packet please make sure you specify that you need the “IVP” application packet.”
Once you have obtained your fingerprint card, you can visit one of the following locations for fingerprinting.
