How do I file charges against someone?

File a report with the police department, then obtain a copy of the report. Take the police report to the court clerk, and you will file a deposition. If there is determined to be probable cause, a warrant or summons will be issued. A warrant cannot be issued without sufficient evidence.

Note: In order to properly credit your ticket, the fine must be received at least 24 hours prior to your court date.
