Parking “boot”: If a vehicle is repeatedly parked in violation of parking rules and/or citations are unpaid, the vehicle may be immobilized by a parking boot. In order to have the boot removed, the violator will need to see JCU Police Department to resolve the issue and/or pay outstanding fines. A vehicle may still be ticketed while booted, if it is parked in violation.

The first time a vehicle is immobilized (Booted) there is no cost to release.  The person will need to pay the outstanding violations to have the boot removed.  Future immobilizations will have a charge.  The second immobilization will be an added cost of $25, third immobilization is $50.  The price will continue to increase by $25 for each addition immobilization.

Towing: In addition to citations, vehicles not displaying an authorized permit, or that are illegally parked, may be towed off campus, at the owner’s expense. This includes any vehicle in a fire lane or blocking access to drives, or passageways, vehicles parked illegally in handicapped spaces, vehicles parked illegally in reserved spaces, vehicles parked illegally in faculty/staff/administrator spaces, or vehicles parked in visitor lots without a proper permit.  Vehicles with general or restricted permits may not park overnight and may be towed.
