In today’s age, more and more organizations are requiring applicants, potential employees, and volunteers to provide fingerprints and criminal history background checks prior to being hired or appointed.

It is vitally important that these checks be processed quickly, accurately and with as little hassle as possible. Employers, licensing agencies, applicants and public safety depend on it.

The Monroe County Central Booking Center, located at the Correctional Facility in Snydersville, provides employment and applicant fingerprinting to the general public.

Generally, the Central Booking Center provides this service during regular business hours, Monday through Friday. However, they will attempt to accomodate individuals that need fingerprinting services outside of these hours on a case-by-case basis.

The cost for this service is $25 payable by check or money order to the “County of Monroe”. You must present photo identification when fingerprinted.

To schedule an appointment, please contact the Monroe County Central Booking Center at (570) 992-6643.
