Before Your Arrive for Court, Check Your Ticket
You may have received a ticket from one of the three police departments in the Carbon Valley area - Firestone, Frederick or Dacono. But before you pay that ticket or arrive for your scheduled court date, check to make sure you arrive at the right municipality. The tickets issued have some similar looks, but if you look closely you’ll see a few differences that will clarify your questions.
