Parking Enforcement

  • Parking Enforcement Officers (PEOs) returned to SPD 1/1/2023.
  • PEO'S are responsible for patrolling the entire city limits and enforcing all parking regulations and parking violations on city property.
  • These SPD employees also cite abandoned cars and support law enforcement 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.
  • If you have questions or concerns, you can reach the PEO Office by dialing (206) 386-9012 or if you need to speak with someone about a non-emergecy parking issue, please contact the CARE at (206) 625-5011
