PARKING ENFORCEMENT MAIN LINE
206 386-9012

Parking Enforcement Officers (PEOs) are uniformed civilian Police Department employees. PEO'S are responsible for patrolling the entire city limits and enforcing all parking regulations and parking violations on city property.

The Unit also cites abandoned cars and supports police in identifying stolen vehicles. During special events or incidents, such as Seafair parades, Seahawks and Mariners games, accident scenes, emergencies and "bad order" traffic signals, PEO's provide traffic control so cars can continue to move.


REPORT AN ABANDONED VEHICLE

An abandoned vehicle is defined as a vehicle within Seattle City Limits on a public street or city property for over 72 hours.

You can report abandoned vehicles using our online form, and Parking Enforcement will follow up.
