Fingerprint Locations

We do free live scan fingerprints here at Grizzly Youth Academy at no charge for mentors attending mentor training.

All mentors must be fingerprinted as part of our background investigation. Please call the mentor coordinator, SFC Castillo, if you have questions about something that might appear on a report at (805) 782-6889.

If you are unable to make it to the academy for fingerprints, you must have them done in your community. We send out live scan forms to mentors as soon as the students are accepted into the program. Click here to find a location for Live Scan services in your community.
