Parking citations issued prior to July 2017 are apart of the paper system and cannot be paid electronically.  If you are flagged with the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) and received a paper citation, you will need to come to the Riverdale Park Police Department  (Monday thru Friday, 9:00am - 3pm) and make the outstanding citation payment.  You may also be required to pay the department's  $25.00 flagging fee, after doing so you will be issued a flagging release form (VR-119).  You must  take the flagging release form, in person, to the MVA for the official release.  
If you are not sure if you have an outstanding citation with the Town of Riverdale Park, you can either call the MVA (410-768-700 from 8:30am to 5:30pm Monday thru Friday), and supply your tag number or call the Riverdale Park Police Department (301-927-4343 from 9:00am to 3:00pm Monday thru Friday).
