OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) will modify the procedure for fingerprinting services to protect the public and personnel during the coronavirus outbreak.

Starting on Tuesday, the NSP Troop A Office at 4411 S. 108th St will require appointments for those in need of fingerprinting services.

The previous procedure allowed walk-ins and has occasionally resulted in groups of people gathering in the waiting room of the NSP office.

“Our team handles a large volume of fingerprinting needs for members of the public across many sectors of the community,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “NSP remains committed to fulfilling those needs. This change is designed to ensure all people can visit an NSP office for fingerprinting without concern for encountering large groups of people.”

NSP will prioritize fingerprinting appointments for healthcare workers, law enforcement officials, other essential personnel and those requiring fingerprinting under state statue.

Fingerprinting services to all are still available but may be delayed if prioritized personnel are in need of fingerprinting, according to NSP.

The NSP office in Omaha was the only office in Nebraska that accepted walk-in fingerprinting to customers.
