The West Fargo Police Department has four police clerks that serve from 6:30 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday thru Friday. The police clerks attend to routine clerical and administrative work such as: answering phone, receiving the public, providing customer assistance, cashiering, data processing and bookkeeping. 

They also provide clerical support for members of the police department; and assisting in the administration of the standard operating policies and procedures of the police department.

They are supervised by the Senior Police Clerk and the Office Supervisor.


Police Clerks  are available at the West Fargo Police Department to fingerprint the public from 6:30 a.m.-7 p.m., Monday-Friday.

If you are a West Fargo resident, there is no charge to get printed.  If you do not live in West Fargo, there is a $10 charge. 

The West Fargo Police Department accepts cash or checks

The West Fargo Police Department has electronic fingerprint capability for agencies in North Dakota requesting the prints.  For example if you need to get printed for the North Dakota Board of Nurses, we are able to do electrionic prints instead of ink fingerprints.  Do not write on your fingerprint cards, if they were provided to you, until you speak with staff at the West Fargo Police Department.  Once the prints are completed they will be signed and sealed. 

If you have any questions please contact us at 701-433-5500.
