The Town of New Hartford Police Department is an available police agency for the purposes of fingerprinting for residents and out-of-town residents, when requested, for civil purposes.
Such fingerprinting is often a requirement for many insurance companies and State of New York agencies, and the Town of New Hartford Police Department is available to meet such requirements.
There is an expense attached to fingerprinting procedures such as utilization of town personnel and materials, and consequently, is an expense upon the taxpayers of the Town of New Hartford.
The Town of New Hartford Police Department shall be hereby authorized to fingerprint, for all noncriminal matters, as required, and shall further charge for such fingerprinting the sum of $8 per card for each resident of the Town of New Hartford applicants and the sum of $12 per card for each out-of-town resident applicant, and said charge shall be payable upon request and receipt of the fingerprints.
