Question:
Can I pay citation fines at the police station?
Answer:
The only fines that can be paid at the police station are parking tickets that are in yellow envelopes, typically placed on the windshield of your vehicle that was parked illegally. Most parking tickets are issued to motorists who choose to park in the fire lane in our shopping centers, too close to a fire hydrant or where parking is prohibited by signs. All other fines must be paid at District Court:

District Court 07-2-07
District Justice Nasshorn
28 North State Street
Newtown, PA 18940
