Police Want Help to Curb Illegal Handicapped Parking

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

Wichita Police are looking for volunteers to spot drivers who illegally park in marked handicapped spaces.

The department is staring the Accessible Parking Enforcement program, designed to have citizens photograph violators. Anyone pictured parking in a handicapped space without a handicapped placard or license plate would be at risk of breaking the ordinance.

Volunteers for the program must have a high school diploma or GED, be at least 21 years old, have a valid Class C driver's license, provide their own transportation and fuel, and pass a background check. In addition, volunteers must have a cell phone while volunteering, be able to attend court hearings, and have no history of mental instability or competency.

Anyone interested in participating can contact the Wichita Police Community Affairs Section at (316) 268-4101 and ask for an application. Further information and a downloadable application are located on the city of Wichita's Web site . The application deadline is April 10. Training will take place May 4.
