The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is advising citizens that fingerprinting services in north Sarasota County have moved to a new location and the hours of operation were expanded for criminal history requests through the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
The computer-based Livescan equipment that was previously at the Sarasota County Jail on Main Street has been moved to the lobby of the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, 2071 Ringling Blvd., Sarasota.
Citizens who need background checks for employment applications, volunteer screenings and other processes should find this more convenient and more comfortable than going to the jail for this service.
Last month the agency moved the south county fingerprinting services to 4531 State Road 776, Venice. Hours for fingerprinting at both locations are 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
