[ARCHIVED] Curran Announces Veterans Traffic and Parking Court Program

Nassau County, NY – Nassau County Executive Laura Curran announced today a special program to assist veterans who have violations or Notices of Liability returnable to the Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency (NCTPVA). Starting October 24th, NCTPVA will hold a monthly hearing session dedicated to assisting veterans and active duty military members with resolving these claims.

“Nassau County is home to one of the largest veterans’ populations in the nation. We are committed to providing programs and services to support our veterans, and to honor their service. These designated court sessions will deliver the personalized attention and assistance our veterans deserve,” said Nassau County Executive Laura Curran.

“At the Nassau County Veteran’s Services Agency, we are always looking to expand our specialized services to help our veterans any way we can. This is another step forward in providing more and more programs and assistance for Nassau County’s veterans,” said Ralph Esposito, Director of the Nassau County Veteran’s Service Agency.

These exclusive hearings will be presented in conjunction with the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office, Nassau County District Court, Nassau County Veterans Service Agency as well as many other Nassau County based veterans’ groups. The program also welcomes Active Duty members.

Upon proper identification, the veteran or active duty military member will be given every courtesy to resolve their violations or Notices of Liability. NCTPVA will work with the District Court to bundle all traffic violations together. NCTPVA will attempt to resolve the violations in one visit unless additional information is required. Some factors that will be used to determine the disposition of the violations is frequency of violations, age of violations and severity of violations.

 Proper Identification includes any of the following;

  • DD214
  • Veteran Health Identification Card
  • Veterans ID Card
  • Driver's License or State ID Card marked veteran

Currently, NCTPVA has 3 Judicial Hearing Officers that are veterans and will make every attempt to have a veteran Judicial Hearing Officer preside over the hearings. Also, Nassau County Veterans Services Agency will have a staff member available for each session to assist the veterans with other needs or services.

NCTPVA will provide 1 hearing session per month on the third Thursday afternoon of each month. Additional sessions will be added as needed. For more information and for upcoming sessions, visit
