Through volunteering with the Accessible Parking Enforcement Program, volunteers will help ensure accessible parking is available for those who need to legally utilize accessible parking spaces.
After receiving training, volunteers will be able to issue citations and warnings to motorists illegally parked in designated accessible parking spaces and will educate the community on the importance of keeping these spaces open for those who are legally entitled to use them.
