Child Fingerprinting Program


Photo of a fingerprintFingerprinting your child is a very good idea and Nampa Police can help. If your child is ever abducted or lost, fingerprints can help law enforcement identify your child and increase the chance of their proper identification and safe return home.

We offer child fingerprinting and encourage groups, such as Cub Scouts or Girl Scouts, or church groups to come in for a tour of the department and to be fingerprinted. If you are interested in bringing your group through for fingerprinting, please contact CSO Yvette Fickel for scheduling.
