Fingerprint fee going to $35 at Manatee County Sheriff's Office

MANATEE -- Beginning January 1, 2012, the fingerprint fee at the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office will be $35. Payment must be in cash.

The old fee was $10. The increase was to bring the sheriff's office more in line with what other agencies charge, said Dave Bristow, sheriff's spokesman.

The public can get fingerprinted 8 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. Monday-Friday at the Operations Center at 600 U.S. 301 Blvd. W., Bradenton.
