Fingerprinting Services

UPDATE: With our community and staff in mind, WUPD is temporarily modifying some our services conducted inside the station. Fingerprinting services will be temporarily suspended until further notice. We will provide an update when this service resumes. Please contact our Department at (314) 935-5555 to check the status of other “in-house” services.

Hours for walk-in fingerprint requests

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday  7 a.m. to 2 p.m. (except holidays). After posted hours, requests will only be handled if an authorized staff member is available. To schedule large groups or classes for fingerprinting, contact Sergeant Geoff Himstedt​ at 314-935-5084.​

Fingerprinting services for the Medical School Campus are by appointment only, through the Protective Services Department, located at 4590 Children’s Place. To schedule an appointment, go to https://facilities.med.wustl.edu/security-new/services-provided/
