Public Safety

The Public Safety Division is responsible for parking enforcement, Inoperable Vehicle Program, graffiti restitution, residential parking permits and administering the sweeper contract:

  • Parking Enforcement - The City is responsible for enforcing the Pico Rivera Municipal Code and California Vehicle Code. Parking Enforcement Officers issue approximately 2,200 citations per month, generating approximately $1,300,000 in revenue per year. This revenue is funneled back into the City’s general fund and used to fund other services, such as recreation programs and street repairs.
  • Inoperable Vehicle Program – Parking Enforcement is responsible for administering the Inoperable Vehicle Program. Removal of these vehicles from residential properties insures the city maintains a clean and safe environment for its residents.
  • Graffiti Restitution – Public Safety Division oversees the collection of court-awarded Restitution in graffiti cases.  Working in conjunction with Public Works removal crews and the Sheriff’s Department, it has collected over $145,000 in reimbursements.
  • Sweeper Contract - Public Safety is responsible for administering the Street sweeper contract.
  • Residential Parking Permits – Public Safety oversees the creation and enforcement of residential permit parking areas.

Permits may be obtained from the City's Public Safety office located at 6615 Passons Blvd., Pico Rivera during the hours of 7:30am to 5:30pm, Monday through Friday.  Please note that City offices are closed on alternate Fridays, weekends, and major holidays.  You will need to present a valid driver's license and the current vehicle registration on the qualifying vehicle.  The address on your driver's license and vehicle registration must indicate the qualifying address.

A Parking Permit will be issued upon meeting all the requirements and payment of fee in the amount of $10.00.  If you are receiving Social Security or you are permanently disabled, you may be eligible for a fee waiver.  Valid documents will be required for consideration.
