On-Street Parking

The PBA on-street enforcement officers are issued a City of Knoxville municipal enforcement certification by the Knoxville Police Department upon approval of a thorough background check, they are sworn in for these duties. Upon PBA Officer training, approval and swearing in, the PBA Officers are then able to work in conjunction with the Knoxville Police Department to issue citations for parking violations. Citations are processed through the Knoxville Police Department and our local court system. In an effort to allow consistent turnover of parking spaces within the Central Business District and Cumberland Corridor, PBA worked in conjunction with the City of Knoxville and KPD to provide this level of enforcement.

Should you have any concerns with regard to our on-street Officers, please contact us at (865) 215-4218.

Please call 311 for any questions regarding issues with a City meter.
