Do to an expected influx of fingerprints, please expect a delay when you come in. There are only two people allowed in the lobby at a time and masks are required, they will be provided if you do not have one. Before we take you back for fingerprints, we will have you sanitize your hands and ask you a couple basic questions. Thank you for your patience as we work through this.

PLEASE NOTE: Except for concealed pistol licenses, we only fingerprint Cowlitz County citizens who live outside city limits. We cannot fingerprint out-of-county or out-of-state citizens.

Fingerprints may be done at the Sheriff’s Office on Monday-Friday from 9am-2pm.

You must bring the following with you:

  • $10 cash (check or debit/credit not accepted) for two (2) cards; more than two are an additional $3 per card
  • Valid Driver’s license or state ID with current address
