Fine Information

Below is the fine schedule for payable violations. If you are unable to pay your ticket and would like a continuance, you will be allowed 1 continuance, but must come in the office to sign for it.

Failure to pay or appear on your court date will result in a warrant for your arrest, additional costs and possible lost of license.

Upon making a court appearance, the court costs of $50 will be added to your fines.

You must appear in court on your scheduled court date if the personal appearance required box is checked on your citation. If the personal appearance box is not checked you can pay out your citation without going to court. Pay the appropriate amount listed on the Payout Fine Schedule by 2 p.m. on the court date on your citation. Any fine paid 7 days after the court date will have a $30 late fee added and a warrant will be issued for your arrest.

Mail payment along with your copy of the citation to:
Harrison Violations Bureau
311 Harrison Avenue
Harrison, OH 45030

Payment can be paid by cash, check, or money order. The Violations Bureau will also accept MasterCard, Visa and Discover Card for payments in person or online on the City website. If paying in cash, the exact amount is recommended as we cannot always make change. Do not mail cash. Checks and money orders must be made payable to Harrison Violations Bureau. Any check returned by the bank will cause a warrant to be issued for your arrest.

Your failure to pay out a citation or your failure to appear in court could result in the suspension or forfeiture of your driving privileges, (Ohio Revised Code Section 4507.168).

State law requires proof of insurance. If Financial Responsibility Proof Shown is not marked “yes” on your citation, you will need to mail/bring a copy of proof of insurance along with your payment.

Fines paid in advance may be paid at the Harrison Police Department, 8 a.m. until midnight, Monday through Friday. Payments are not accepted after 2 p.m. on court dates. One continuance of your court date for a reasonable need may be obtained by appearing in person at the Harrison Police Department. Further continuances must be requested during court sessions.
