“NO PARKING” SIGNS
Certain areas can be posted for “No Parking” to reserve parking spaces for the production vehicles. Prior to the film permit times, the production company will post the “No Parking” signs for the parking areas allocated in the permit.
Upon a short notice cancellation, if the officer cannot be notified before he goes to the location, the Officer will still be paid a four (4) hour minimum, for which the film company will be billed. Once the film permit request form has been submitted, an application fee will be charged when the company representative fails to withdraw the request 24 hours prior to the requested film shoot. If a Fire Safety Officer has been assigned, please call 818-238-3386 to cancel.
If there should be a problem at the location, it is the responsibility of the senior law enforcement officer working the job to handle the situation, or contact the Traffic Commander, Film Coordinator or Watch Commander to mediate.
DISTRIBUTION OF PERMIT
A copy of the film permit will be given to the production company. A copy of the film permit must be on hand at all times at the film location. A copy of the permit will be distributed to the appropriate City departments involved.
