Credit Card Statement Information

Is the Online Parking Ticket System secure?
The Parking Ticket System uses 128-bit encryption, which is the highest level available. Encryption is the scrambling of information for transmission back and forth between two points. A key is required to decode the information. This is the same security used on all online internet-based payment applications. This site does not store any information about your credit card. Once an approval or rejection is received, the information is purged from the system.
What if I receive a message that the system is not available?
If you get this message, the system should be available within one to two hours. There are times when the site may not be available for processing online payments.
How do I contest my citation?
Currently, this site does not allow for contesting a citation online. This feature may be added in the future. You must contest your citation within the first 21 calendar days following the issuance by appearing in person at the Stockton Police Department Traffic Section at the Main Police Station. You may request a Review of Parking Citation Form be mailed to you by contacting the Traffic Section.
Be sure to include any supporting evidence such as pictures, statements from witnesses, receipts, or other documentation to assist in the review of your citation. If you are contesting a citation, there is no payment necessary until a final Notice of Decision has been made on your citation. If you have any questions, please contact the Stockton Police Department Traffic Section.
