Enforcement Services to begin using eTicketing system

Beginning June 15, 2020, Strathcona County Enforcement Services will begin using eTicketing technology for traffic violations issued under the Provincial Offences Procedure Act.

The eTicketing system was piloted in August 2019 for parking enforcement at Centre in the Park. Community Peace Officers have completed training, and using a smartphone, officers will scan a driver’s licence to digitally enter and record driver information. The ticket is printed on the spot using a portable printer.

When an eTicket is issued, the ticket is automatically entered into the provincial court system. This system eliminates the need for County or court administration to re-enter data. The public will be able to pay tickets within 24-72 hours rather than having to wait 6-8 weeks and reduces court date scheduling from three months to approximately 28 days.

The eTicketing system increases citizen, motorist and officer safety and reduces their risk of exposure to dangerous situations and other traffic, as officers and citizens spend less time on the roadside. Officers are now able to spend more time protecting citizens and enforcing safety in Strathcona County.
