I am often asked how to pay tickets received in Metairie, Louisiana. Tickets issued by the State Police or Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office are heard before the judges in Metairie, Louisiana at First Parish Court on David Drive. After referring many people to the clerk’s office for the answer, I finally called myself. Below are the options for payment
According to the Traffic Division of 1st Parish Court, there are three options for payment:
You can pay your ticket in person inside Jefferson Parish 2nd Parish Court at window for the Sheriff’s Office. The address is 924 David Drive in Metairie, Louisiana 70003. They can be reached by phone at (504) 731-4682. Please note that cellular phones are not allowed inside the building.
Payments by mail are accepted when made using a certified check or money order. The payment should be mailed to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office at 924 David Drive in Metairie, Louisiana 70003. Remember to include your case number (which will start with the letter “S”) on the check or send a copy of the Fee and Fine Slip. If you would like confirmation of the payment from the Sheriff’s Office, you should include Self-Addressed Stamped envelope so they can send your receipt back. I strongly advise using some form of tracking number for any payment sent through the mail like USPS certified mail or UPS/FEDex tracking services.
You can pay speeding tickets online using the website below.
Online payments for tickets in Metairie require you to have the last name of the person who received the ticket, either the ticket number (which is on the top of your traffic ticket) or case number for the ticket, the first name of the person who received the ticket, and the date of birth of the person who received the ticket. Please note that JPSO assesses a 2.49% convenience fee for credit/debit card payments, but you can avoid this fee when you pay with a checking account.
First Parish Court does not accept payments over the phone.
Always remember to include your ticket number or case number on your check. The ticket number or case number are the best ways for the Clerk’s Office to know which ticket to apply your payment to.
