If a case concerns a serious crime, or a crime of a type for which the police cannot issue a fixed penalty notice, a police lawyer will issue an ordinary penalty notice and send it to you by post after the case has been investigated.

You will be given a deadline of a few days to either accept or refuse the penalty notice. If you wish to object to the penalty notice, you must contact the police lawyer who issued the penalty notice. If you do not accept the penalty notice, the case will be sent to the local District Court to be decided.

You are not entitled to a public defence counsel in such cases, and the police will normally add the legal costs to the claim when such cases are heard by the District Court.

The police will send the penalty notice to us. It can take time to send the fine to us. Once we receive the claim, we send you an invoice that you can pay or use as the basis for a payment agreement. No charge is added to the first invoice. 

If you wish to apply for cancellation of the debt (pardon) or appeal against the fine, it is the prosecuting authorities that will consider your application. Enforcement of the claim will not be stopped while the application is being considered unless we are told to do so by the prosecuting authorities.

We can consider applications for the cancellation of reminder charges.
