The Parking Enforcement Program of the Police Department is staffed with a single Parking Enforcement Officer. This section is devoted to ensuring the regular movement of vehicles in the downtown core area to assist in the influx and movement of consumer traffic for Walla Walla merchants. This section not only provides parking enforcement services, but also provides a visible presence for citizens to seek assistance in the downtown area, and to relay requests for other public safety needs.
The downtown business area has been designated a two-hour parking zone (Municipal Code 10.13.010). This area is marked by signs that are posted on the traffic light poles and elsewhere.
