Payable Summons

Check Writing

Any traffic or criminal summons marked payable by a Golden Police Officer or a Colorado School of Mines officer may be paid in full by mail, in person, or with a credit card over the phone.

The court must receive your payment prior to the court date assigned on the summons or you must appear in court.

If you elect to pay the fine without appearing in court, you forfeit all rights available under the law regarding your case.

Upon payment of a traffic summons, a plea of guilty is entered on your case. If any points are assessed with that plea, we will report points to the Department of Revenue, Motor Vehicle Division.

If you do not wish to enter a plea of guilty, you must appear in court on the date assigned on your summons. Failure to appear in court may result in a warrant for your arrest or a default judgment against your license, which could result in the cancellation of your Colorado driver’s license.

Restitution payments

Upon order issued by the judge, restitution payments are due in full.
