From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A civil enforcement officer is a person employed to enforce parking and traffic restrictions in England & Wales. In England, they are employed by county councils, London Borough Councils, metropolitan district councils or Transport for London, and in Wales by county (borough) councils - or private companies contracted by any of the above. Until the passage of the Traffic Management Act 2004, they were known as "Parking Attendants" or "Traffic Wardens".



Civil enforcement officers may only exercise their functions when wearing a uniform authorised by the Secretary of State.[1] They may issue Penalty Charge Notices for numerous offences, and can inspect blue badges.[2] They may immobilise vehicles[3]. Penalty charge notices are not criminal proceedings, and failure to pay will result in certificated bailiffs serving warrants of execution.[4] Although more rare, Civil Enforcement Officers employed by some councils double as neighbourhood wardens. These CEOs issue fixed penalties for anti-social behaviour, environmental crime and locally enacted ordinances, such as noise violations, in addition to issuing tickets for traffic violations.
