PARKING CITATION REVEIW - FIRST LEVEL (40215(a) CVC)
In order to comply with state law and the College of the Sequoias Community College District's parking review program, it is the policy of the District Police Department to review the circumstances surrounding the issuance of a parking citation upon the request of the person to whom the citation was issued. The circumstances of the violation will be reviewed by a committee. The committee consists of a representative from the Associate student Body (ASB), a member of the College Faculty, and a member of the College Classified Staff. The committee is chaired by the Chief of Police; however the Chief does not maintain a vote on the action. This level of appeal does not require you to pay the citation. The person receiving the citation will be notified of the results via the e-mail provided on the appeal.
You may submit your appeal using the option given to you on the e-mail notification that will be sent to you when you receive your citation.
You may go the website given below to appeal your citation:
