Where are fingerprinting services available?
Most police departments and sheriff offices will fingerprint foster and adoptive family applicants. But since they are not required by law to do so, it is advised the applicant call ahead for details such as availability and cost.
A few OKDHS offices provide fingerprint services; foster care and adoptive workers can let you know if this service is available within the county.
Fingerprints may be scheduled at the Community Intervention Center (CIC) by calling (405) 528-2884 for an appointment. The facility address is:
Community Intervention Center
201 N.E. 50th Street
Oklahoma City, OK 73105-1811
The CIC is located in the Youth Services for Oklahoma County, Inc. building. The entrance is on the west side of the building and is clearly visible by a blue awning. CIC visitor parking is available.
