PoliceDeptPaymentsThe Rye Police Department now accepts online payments for many services. Police reports, accident reports, parking tickets, police details, and pistol permit fees may be paid online or in person via credit card or electronic check (ACH). Please review the instructions below for important information before submitting any payments.

 

SERVICE FEES

There are small fees for using the online payment system. These are in addition to the original payment amount for the requested service and cover all processing fees. If you wish to avoid these fees, you can still mail a check or money order. Never send cash.

  • When paying via credit card, there is a 2.9% fee with a $1.50 minimum.
  • When paying via electronic check (ACH), there is a flat $1.50 fee.
  • There is an additional $1.50 fee per transaction when paying online. This fee does not apply when paying in person.

ACCIDENT REPORTS

TOWN ORDINANCE VIOLATIONS

Town ordinance violations must be paid through Portsmouth District Court. If your violation is marked as MUST APPEAR, you cannot plea by mail. If it is marked that you do not have to come to court, you may pay your fine in person or by mail to 111 Parrott Ave. Portsmouth, NH. You may also pay by credit card in person or over the phone by calling 1-855-212-1234.
