If you have questions for the Prince William County Police Department, we'll pass them along to Officer Jonathan Perok and First Sgt. Kim Chinn, public information officers with the department.
Question: Why can’t the police enforce federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) issues in the county? For example, disabled parking that is on a hill, making it impossible for disabled in wheel chairs to leave the vehicle safely. Regular parking spots that were changed to Disabled Parking spots but no lines were added to make the accessibility impossible for disabled in wheel chairs to leave their car. This is just an example of situations that police could enforce.
Answer: County Property Code Enforcement is responsible for ensuring that private and public properties are compliant with ADA issues. The county police, however, can enforce laws where vehicles are parked in those spots without a valid reason to do so. Below is a link to the code enforcement website.
