There has been a recent change in procedure for residents needing to be fingerprinted for various licenses and permits required by State Statute or Manasquan Borough Ordinance. The Division of State Police has implemented a statewide fully automated electronic fingerprinting system for non-criminal justice purposes. Residents requiring fingerprinting for background checks must now fill out application forms at Manasquan Borough Hall. They will then be provided by police with a form and directed to make an appointment to be fingerprinted at a state-contracted live scan station in a nearby municipality. Fees ranging from $29.00 to $60.25, depending on the type of application must be paid to the live-scan station vendor. Manasquan P.D. will then be notified at a later date of the fingerprint scan results and the background check will be completed. Residents needing fingerprinting should normally allow up to six weeks for the background check process to be complete from the time of application at Borough Hall. Background checks for certain types of licensing (i.e. Firearms Permits, raffles and Liquor Licenses) may take longer to complete.
