Traffic Division of City Court



Traffic

The Traffic Division of the City Court presides over cases when a person is issued a traffic ticket by the Hammond Police Department, the Southeastern Louisiana Univeristy Police Department and perhaps the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office, or the Louisiana State Police.

For your convenience, you may handle many traffic violations by mail. If your citation is for one of the violations listed below, mail your ticket along with a money order (no personal checks accepted) to City Court of Hammond, 303 East Thomas Street, Hammond, LA 70401. If the violation is not listed, you may call 542-3455 for more information. It still may be possible to avoid a court appearance.
The Payment processor will add a processing fee to your fine to cover the cost of your payment. You will be given your full payment amount prior to completing your transaction.

Below is a partial list of violations that are payable to the City Court of Hammond. If you cannot locate your violation below please call the court for the price of the ticket.
