IMPORTANT! Effective Immediately:
For new Security Guards who do not hold an MED badge or current badge from a neighboring city*
There are major changes to occupational fingerprinting in Colorado. The Town does not have a choice on the type of fingerprints that can be accepted, so please follow the instructions.
Fingerprints are now being done by a vendor chosen by the State of Colorado. You have to make an appointment online. Right now, the closest location is in Fort Collins. There are plans to open a Greeley location soon, but we do not have a date. You will pay the fingerprinting fee ($10) and the CBI fee ($16.50) when you get fingerprinted. The Town of Garden City used to pay that fee, which is why the fee for a new security guard is higher than that of a renewal or someone with a current badge in a neighboring city. This fee will be discounted from your Garden City Security Badge fee until a new official fee is set by the Board of Trustees.
