Residents should bring the fingerprint cards given to them by their perspective employer/agency.

Criminal history record checks for firearms applications, alcohol beverage licensing, paid or part-time firemen, volunteer employees, and local ordinances requiring fingerprinting must be done via electronic live-scan fingerprinting at Identogo, the New Jersey State Police vendor for fingerprint services. Residents should contact Identogo directly to schedule an appointment or visit them on the web at https://nj.ibtfingerprint.com/.  Residents must FIRST come to the Riverton Police Department to get the paperwork and identification number needed to schedule an appointment.
