Title: Delinquent Citation Enforcement

Enforcement For Delinquent Tickets Begins May 25

All Five Districts Will Impound Vehicles

Vehicles with unpaid parking citations will be targeted in a citywide initiative Wednesday, May 25, 2011, when Cincinnati Police Officers from all five Districts will team their Automated License Plate Readers (ALPR) with tow trucks to find and impound vehicles with unpaid tickets.

They will focus on vehicles with multiple delinquent tickets. The operation will begin with a combined roll call and briefing where officers will receive lists of the target vehicles. Then they will fan out to their respective Districts and patrol areas with concentrations of on-street parking.

The ALPR indicates when a license plate with outstanding citations is observed. The vehicle will be impounded, and the owner will have to pay the outstanding fines and penalties plus towing and any storage fees to get the vehicle back.

This initiative is an effort to resolve the large number of outstanding unpaid and delinquent parking citations.
