86th Airlift Wing establishes Parking Monitor Program

Do you have problems with parking where you work? Are your designated reserve parking spaces being taken by people who do not work in your building? If so, then the 86th AW Parking Monitor program can help.

The program was established for military units to designate personnel to enforce non-moving traffic violations at their respective facilities and a means of assisting security forces with parking enforcement on Ramstein.

Once trained, parking monitors can issue violators an “on-the-spot” DD Form 1408, Armed Forces Traffic Ticket, without waiting for security forces to respond.  
The requirements to become a parking monitor are one year of retainability and be appointed by the unit commander.

After being appointed, a short training course will be conducted by security forces.
These classes are normally scheduled once a month. Parking monitors will be trained on the Installation Traffic Code, what to do when a violation is reported, and how to fill out the Armed Forces Traffic Ticket.

After successful completion of the training course, parking monitors will be issued their own ticket book and sent on their way to fix unit parking problems.  
Facilities operating during normal duty hours are allowed two parking monitors, each 24-hour facility is allowed up to four parking monitors. 

For more information, contact Master Sgt. Roberto Torres or Tech. Sgt. Gregory Stanley, 86th  Security Forces Squadron Police Services, at 478-2231.
