Slice of Life: Pleading Your Case on Notebook Paper

Ran across this scene a little while ago.  Someone posted a note in their window reading, "Officer, Please don't ticket my car for no front plate.  It was stolen and I have applied for a new plate.  Thank you."

I thought the "Officer" salutation was interesting.  Do police officers still write tickets, or is parking enforcement all civilians and private companies now?
