Need help urgently from a police officer?

Faculty, staff, students and alumni may need to record their fingerprints to accompany a program application or as part of a certification process. Arrange an appointment with University Police to complete your record.

Fingerprinting Services Resume in Limited Capacity

As the university starts the safe re-opening process, your University Police have resumed non-criminal fingerprinting in a limited capacity. To observe CDC and NY State guidelines, these additional requirements are currently in place:

  • We will not be able to fingerprint anyone who is symptomatic. If you have symptoms please stay home.
  • You will have to wear a mask while you are inside the police station getting fingerprinted.
