Citation Payment

If you desire to make an online payment, you may do so here: Please note, the only accepted citation payments are those issued through the Indianapolis Airport Authority. If "Indianapolis Airport Authority" or "Indianapolis Airport Police" does not appear on your citation, it cannot be paid via this web page. If you do not have the information requested, you may still be able to pay online by first contacting the front desk at 317-487-5084.

APD does NOT accept cash payments. Individuals desiring to make a cash payment for a police/accident report or to pay a local ordinance may do so at the airport's Guest Services Desk located in Civic Plaza in the terminal.

If you have been issued a state violation ticket by our agency, you can contact the Marion County Violations Bureau at 866-729-4639 or pay online at

Vehicle Releases

Vehicles towed by the APD are generally towed by Zore's Towing. Before retrieving your vehicle from Zore's Towing, you must come to the APD and obtain a release form. We do not accept payment for your vehicle's tow, as the cost of the tow is paid directly to the towing service.

A vehicle can be released ONLY to the registered owner. If the registered owner is not available, a power of attorney form may be obtained from the BMV. This form will allow the registered owner to authorize the release of the vehicle to a third party. A vehicle release can only be obtained if there is a valid, licensed driver present.
