The PHPD accepts two (2) forms of payment when posting bonds for persons being held in jail or for persons posting bond on outstanding warrants. We accept cash (in the exact amount) at our police station. We only accept credit cards (VISA, MASTERCARD and DISCOVER) at the Mayor's Court located in City Hall and open Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. There is an additional Bond Surcharge in the amount of $25 that is charged by the State of Ohio for each bond posted. Bonds guarantee an appearance at court and may be forfeited if the person fails to appear for their court date. Bonds written to the individual facing the charges may be used towards any fines and/or fees ordered by the court. Bonds may be subject to change by the court.
Persons having an outstanding warrant with the City of Parma Heights have the option of posting bond on the warrant without being placed in custody. They are required to bring the amount of bond to the Police Department and they will be provided with the paperwork necessary to clear their warrant. They will be issued a new court date and are required to appear in court for their charges. The acceptable forms of payment are cash (in the exact amount), personal checks (which are automatically withdrawn from your account) and credit cards (VISA, MASTERCARD and DISCOVER). There is an additional Bond Surcharge in the amount of $25.00 that is charged by the State of Ohio for each bond posted.

Our department periodically runs a warrant amnesty program to help clear up old warrants. To see if you qualify for the program, contact our Mayor's Court at 440.884.9603.
