Issuance of Parking Permits Changes to Lakewood Police DepartmentJune 23, 2015
Starting in March 2015, the Lakewood Police Department began issuing parking permits. Previously, the public works department issued parking permissions — with permissions granted by the director of public works.
Those interested in obtaining residential street and municipal lot parking permits are encouraged to call Janet Smith in the police department, at 216-529-6749. The police office hours are 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Cash, check, or money order will be accepted, and those seeking renewal will need to fill out a short renewal application to be entered into the new system.

Lakewood Police Capt. Gary Sprague said that often, people contact a city department to ask permission to park in violation of some restriction, including the rules about not parking on certain city streets between 3 and 6 a.m.
“We wanted to do this with more efficiency and more consistency,” said Sprague. “But, more importantly, this about continuing to deliver excellent customer service to our residents.”
