Due to demand, the Bend Police Department is extending the hours for fingerprinting services. The new hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays and 1 to 4 p.m. Thursdays.

The department began offering the service in May primarily to accommodate employers who required fingerprint identification for employee background checks. The first card costs $20 and each additional card costs $5. Parents may also request a free Child Identification Packet, which contains DNA and fingerprinting sections.

To schedule an appointment, call 541-322-2960.
