The City of Columbus Division of Parking Services employ Parking Enforcement Officers that enforce all city parking codes to ensure parking compliance and the orderly turnover of parking throughout the city.

Parking Enforcement Officers patrol assigned district by vehicle, bike, on foot and by using vehicle license plate recognition technology (LPR). Parking enforcement staff also provide enforcement for special events, street cleaning, OSU football, permit parking and time restricted parking zones.

Parking Enforcement Officers understand the vital role they play in the overall success of our parking program through proper enforcement, training, and focusing on customer service.
