Can the Broomfield Police Department fingerprint my child?



A child’s finger/palm print is unique to them and is most often fully refined after the age of two. We suggest finger/palm printing your child to retain as a record that can be used as an identification tool. The Child Safety - Fingerprint Card allows you to do this on your own at home. Print this form and use craft stamping ink to capture as much of your child’s hand print as possible. Take the time to review the safety tips provided and retain the document in a secure place.

For any other questions regarding fingerprinting, please call 303-464-5799.
