Fingerprinting for Background Checks

As of December 9th, 2020 cardboard fingerprint cards for STATE background checks will no longer be accepted by the Kentucky State Police (KSP).  

Please see the Kentucky State Police (KSP) website for more information.

Sheriff Korzenborn has expressed his concerns to Kentucky legislators regarding this change by KSP resulting in charges from $18 to $52 to those needing/requiring fingerprint services. The Sheriff is more than willing for our office to continue serving the needs of Kenton County residents at no cost but KSP will refuse to accept the cards.  

Please call the Kenton County Sheriff's Office at 859-392-1800 to see if we can assist you in the fingerprint process.
