BIPD’s parking enforcement officers (PEOs) perform field and office work related to the enforcement of parking ordinances and maintain parking records. Year round, PEOs walk and drive throughout the island to ensure compliance with parking regulations, especially in carpool areas, no parking zones, disabled parking areas, time-limited spaces, and address vehicles blocking access and sidewalks. PEOs are also responsible for addressing parking complaints, impounding improperly parked or abandoned vehicles, directing traffic when needed, appearing in traffic court, attending community meetings to address parking issues and managing the downtown employee parking permit program.
