Welcome to the 25th

Serving the Lincoln Park, Ecorse and River Rouge Communities

Security screening is used daily at the 25th District Court. Individuals and their belongings (purses, bags, briefcases, etc) are subject to search.

Weapons of ANY kind, cell phones or any other electronic devices ARE NOT allowed in the court building.

The 25th District Court is pleased to offer a free, voluntary, online traffic ticket review process for eligible traffic tickets issued by the City of Lincoln Park Police Department, The City of Ecorse Police Department and the City of River Rouge Police Department. This allows you to request a review of your traffic ticket online, at your convenience, so you don't have to come to the courthouse.

Shortly after you submit certain information, the respective prosecutor will evaluate your eligibility to participate in this new program. Once you are deemed eligible to participate, you can sign up to receive emails or text messages with the status of your review as well as the outcome. If you meet the eligibility requirements, you will be offered a 'no-points' violation.

We believe this will save you a significant amount of time while preserving your rights. We hope you agree.
