All others should visit the Altamonte Springs Police Department. A valid Florida photo ID/Driver’s license is required; call 407-571-8463 before you go.

Fingerprinting is done on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. Longwood Residents must show ID; this is free. Non-Residents must pay $15 and in cash form only.
