Detectives from the Phoenixville Police Department are available to do non-criminal fingerprinting for those who work or reside in the Borough. Typically, such fingerprints are needed for purposes like employment and immigration applications. We do not provide fingerprinting for the purposes of FBI/child abuse clearances. Consult with your potential employer for the correct procedure to complete child abuse clearances.
Non-criminal fingerprinting is done on the following day only:
- Tuesday, 9AM to 12PM
No appointment is necessary, but it is strongly suggested that you call first to ensure someone is available to roll your fingerprints.
Residents: $10 fee
Non-Resident: $20 fee

Child Car Safety Seat Checks
The Phoenixville Police Department offers the opportunity for parents to get one-on-one personalized instruction on how to properly use their child’s car seat by a Nationally Registered and Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST). We put our knowledge to work through a variety of activities, including community presentations and/or child safety seat checks where parents and caregivers receive education and hands-on assistance with the proper use of child restraint systems and seat belts. A majority of parents (over 70%) still misuse their child restraints and need help to get it right.
Contact the police station at 610-933-1180 to set up an appointment with Officer Vince Stabilo.
