Fingerprinting Service and Concealed Weapon Licenses
The person being fingerprinted must present current government-issued photo identification.
The fee is $5.00 cash.
If you have forms that need to be filled out specific to your background check, please bring them along as we do not have forms.
Concealed Weapon Licenses
HCSO does not conduct classes, renewals or photos. Go to the North Dakota Attorney Generals website.
The Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) processes the applications and issues concealed weapon licenses. Find out if you are ELIGIBLE and how to apply for, or renew, a ND concealed weapon license and which states have RECIPROCITY.
Application Status Inquiries
The BCI is prohibited by law from providing information about the status of a concealed weapon license application to anyone, even the applicant. Instead, follow the instructions for making a written status inquiry.
Wearing Face Masks
There is no general prohibition against wearing a face mask for lawful purposes, such as to comply with public health requirements.
An expired license is invalid and cannot be renewed. You will need to apply as a new applicant and complete all required testing. You cannot carry concealed with an expired license.
