Fees

The Santa Ana Police Department may require the collection of fees for various enforcement activities, services, and programs.

For example, parking citations issued as a result of parking in a red zone can result in a $47 fine pursuant to the Santa Ana Municipal Code.  Excessive false alarms can result in penalty fees ranging from $50 to $400 per incident.

The Santa Ana Police Department's front lobby accepts checks or exact change for the fees.  An ATM is available in the lobby for your convenience.
