The Sheriff’s Office has asked for assistance in catching handicapped parking violators in the act.  If you witness a potential violation, the Sheriff’s Office directs you to use the email tipline to inform authorities, and be sure to include information such as the date and time of the incident, the exact location, a description of the vehicle and the license plate number.  Photos may be included in the email report.
