The Paonia Police Department does not provide fingerprint card services for civilians needing them for employment and/or background checks.
Effective September 24, 2018, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) implemented the Colorado Applicant Background Services (CABS) program in response to Senate Bill 17-189. This program moves fingerprinting services away from law enforcement agencies to certified vendors around the state.
