The Police Department has a new way to report parking complaints throughout Prince William County. Parking complaints are one of the most common complaints received by the Department and we ask residents for your patience as these matters are prioritized and addressed.
*NOTE: If your complaint involves a vehicle obstructing traffic or posing a safety risk to pedestrians or bicyclists, or involves vehicles parked in a manner obstructing a fire hydrant, fire lane, or marked handicapped space, please call the non-emergency line at 703-792-6500 so a patrol officer can respond. These complaints require immediate attention.
Other complaints, such as vehicles with expired inspection or registration, or those regarding illegally parked vehicles, abandoned vehicles, commercial vehicles that are illegally parked in residential areas, as well as boats, RVs, trailers and other large items that may be parked in violation of County laws, are considered lower priority and will be addressed as soon as possible. In these cases, residents should call the Parking Enforcement line at 703-792-8536, or send an email. The parking enforcement line is not a monitored line, residents are asked to leave a brief description of the concern, including a vehicle description, and the specific location of where the vehicle is parked.
Parking Enforcement officers work varying shifts Monday through Friday during the day time hours, and occasionally on weekends. When the complaint is received, it will be assigned to the appropriate police district (western, central, or eastern) for review and action. Parking matters, such as those described as 'other complaints' above, are considered lower priority and may take a few days to address. As the Department has limited resources to look into these complaints, we ask for patience and understanding.
