Enforcement Communication

The goal of the Duncanville ISD Parking Services is to communicate prior to an enforcement action.  A citation is not the first attempt at communication by the Duncanville ISD Police/Security Department.  Signage, violation warning notices, website: police.duncanvilleisd.org phone: 972 708-3800, email: citations@duncanvilleisd.org and Faculty/Staff Handbook are accessible resources to help understand parking expectations prior to parking on campus.

Multiple emails:  Individuals can add multiple email addresses to their registration form to be notified if a citation is issued. 

Stickers:  In some situations, a physical orange warning sticker will be placed on a vehicle as an attempt to communicate an important message to the owner/operator of the vehicle.  These orange warning stickers indicate an important parking issue/warning which requires action.

Towing:  Duncanville ISD Police Department is under NO obligation to attempt to locate, call, or email the owner/operator of a vehicle prior to it being towed.  Any such warning effort by Duncanville ISD Police Department should be considered a courtesy (and immediately acted upon).
