Collection of Fines & Costs
In addition to restitution, the Department of Court Records, Criminal Division collects fines and costs due Allegheny County for violations. If not paid in full, defendants are required to make timely payments. By an Order of the Court, if a defendant is ordered to pay restitution, fines and costs, all payments will be credited towards restitution once the commonwealth mandated crime victim assessments are paid in full.
When complete restitution has been made to the victim, subsequent payments will be credited to the defendants fines and costs. For further information, please call the Collection Department at 412-350-5311
