Bayfield Marshal's Office


The Bayfield Marshal's Office provides VIN verifications as a deputy is available to do so. These are done on a walk in basis only during normal business hours. The fee for a VIN verification is $20.00. Cash, checks and debit/credit cards are accepted (debit/credit cards will be charged a small fee). Please bring a title or bill of sale and a picture ID.  The vehicle must be present at the Bayfield Marshal's Office in order to do the verification. If for some reason your vehicle is not drivable please call 24 hour police dispatch at 970-385-2900 to make arrangements for a deputy to perform the VIN verification at your home.

The Bayfield Marshal's Office no longer provides fingerprinting for Colorado citizens. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has implemented a new program called Colorado Applicant Background Services (CABS). CABS is a digital fingerprint submission process that has helped to reduce the burden on Law Enforcement and CBI. CBI has selected American BioIdentity Inc. and Colorado Fingerprinting to provide this new Digital Scanning Process for the people of Colorado.  Please see below flyers for more information on how to set up an appointment for these services.
