Fingerprinting procedures for City of Boulder liquor licensing purposes:
1) Applicants are preferred to be fingerprinted on Boulder Police Department (BPD) fingerprint cards. If the liquor license applicant lives out of state or out of the City of Boulder, you may be fingerprinted at your local police department or sheriff’s office if the outside agency prints on and you are able to provide the Licensing Clerk with standard cardstock FBI fingerprint cards. Please contact the Licensing office at 303-441-4192 to discuss other arrangements.
2) Applicants should be prepared to let the BPD department employee who is fingerprinting them know whether they live in the City of Boulder or, because they have a signed lease or deed for their proposed licensed establishment, that they currently work in the City of Boulder qualifying them for BPD printing.
3) On the fingerprint card there is a box that asks “Reason Fingerprinted.” Unless the police department directs you otherwise, you can leave this box blank. The City Clerk’s office and the police department may have stickers to put in this section. The stickers says: “Liquor License App. – Boulder, CO C.R.S. 12-47-307(3)(a)(b).” If the police officer printing you wants you to write something in, then you should write the above information in. Please note that this information is only relevant to liquor licensing and not other types of licensing such as medical marijuana businesses.
