Right of Access and Review

The Access and Review Fingerprint Card is used by the Plainfield Police Department when an individual is requesting a review of their criminal history regardless of conviction status.
The response from the Bureau of Identification will be accompanied by a Record Challenge Form which a person used to record items in a record to be challenged. The contents of the form will contain sufficient information to identify the individual and the transaction referred to, and adequate space will be provided for the individual to record the facts of the challenge to file an administrative appeal complaint.
If a person feels that this process would be beneficial to them, they need to come to the police department and have fingerprints taken to be sent to the Bureau of Identification.


We are available to fingerprint citizens for employment, adoption, licensing, or background investigations Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Fingerprinting is done on a walk-in basis, however, we are only able to provide the service if the Booking Room is unoccupied at the time. Therefore, appointments cannot be made, due to the unpredictability of arrest status. If you are a resident of the Village of Plainfield (a Plainfield mailing address does not necessarily ensure Village residency) or if the fingerprinting is being requested from a business or school in the Village of Plainfield, there is no charge for the service. For citizens who reside outside of the Village of Plainfield, there is a $20 fee for fingerprinting services.


In the Village of Plainfield, individuals that will be doing door-to-door sales or leaving literature at residences must have a Solicitor Permit and may visit residences between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
If you wish to apply for a Solicitor Permit, the fee is $50.00 for the first applicant and $35 for each additional applicant (up to 15 employees per company) for 60 days. It takes at least five (5) working days to process the application. All individuals that will be soliciting must be listed on the application along with their full name, date of birth, and driver's license number, if applicable. Each applicant must also provide a photo (similar to a passport photo) to be attached to the permit which must be worn at all times while soliciting. A background check is performed on all individuals listed to ensure the safety of our citizens.
Please note: Any literature that will be handed to residents MUST be provided at the time the application is received by Records. If you are “Doing Business As” (DBA), the application should also indicate you are DBA, in addition to the parent name of the company.
Solicitor permits shall not be granted to any individuals selling from a truck, nor shall there be any solicitation on public roadways or temporary stands in front of businesses.
