Individuals who need a sign-language interpreter should submit a written request to the Board of Fingerprinting as soon as possible. We will hire an interpreter for the hearing. However, it is important that you submit this request as far in advance of your hearing as possible, preferably as soon as you get your notice of hearing. Sometimes, sign-language interpreters have limited availability.
Unfortunately, due to budget constraints, the Board will not provide an interpreter for languages other than American Sign Language. If you are not comfortable speaking in English, you must make arrangements to bring your own interpreter.
