Micah and I had to get fingerprinted at our local police department for our FBI criminal history. Last time we did this, we had it done at the Law Enforcement Center where we pay to get inked by a jailer and all around feel like real criminals. We use it as a teaching tool for our children... about what the future holds for those who break the rules.
We showed up there today expecting the same. I went to the front desk and said, "We're here to get fingerprinted." The kind receptionist stated that the LEC only does that on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I told her that the lady I talked to on the phone said it was Mondays and Wednesdays. She informed me that I must have been talking to the Police Department down the block. So we high-tailed it down to the PD.
Once there, a nice man in a nice tie came down in a nice elevator to get us and escorted us up to a nice office area where a nice machine took our fingerprints with no ink and no hand gun strapped to his waist. This was such a change from getting our fingers inked and rolled inside of the jail! It also turned out as we chatted, that the fingerprint technician had been adopted! Added perk: it was cheaper at the PD $$$. So happy that worked out like it did.
