§ 4604. Exclusions
(a) Nothing in this chapter prohibits any person from fingerprinting any other person by a method not authorized by this chapter. However, this chapter provides the only sanctioned method by which law enforcement agencies and officers may take fingerprints of minors pursuant to a program of voluntary fingerprinting of minors.
(b) No law enforcement agency or officer is required by this chapter to take the fingerprints of any minor if doing so would be unreasonably difficult or impossible or would create an undue burden on the law enforcement agency or officer. (Added 1985, No. 27.)
