As Thibodaux Police Officers, we handle many different types of complaints. Often it’s to assist a citizen in need as well as arrest subjects who have violated the law. The Thibodaux Police Department also takes “PRIDE” in helping to keep the City Of Thibodaux clean. While Thibodaux Officers patrol the streets in Thibodaux, they observe many sites. One of the sites that is not so pleasant is that of an abandoned vehicle. Not only are abandoned vehicles an unpleasant site, but they can also become a danger.
When a Thibodaux Police Officer locates an abandoned vehicle, the vehicle is tagged with a notification sticker. The sticker informs the owner of a date and time that the vehicle has to be moved by and if not moved it will be towed at the owner’s expense. The owner can and will be issued a Misdemeanor Summons as it is a violation of a City Ordinance.
