The Department of Justice for the Loddon Mallee region and Victoria Police joined forces on Saturday to catch people with unpaid fines.

The Mobile Justice Service Centre traveled the state promoting 'advice, help and justice, wherever you need it.'

Regional manager for the sheriff’s office Roger Williams said the main aspect of the day was running the number plate recognition technology.

Mr Williams said the bus was present in Elmore on Friday and the team had identified more than $100,000 in unpaid fines.

"The main message we want to tell is that fines don't just go away," he said.

"The best option, if you have an unpaid fine, is to contact the sheriff's office.

"You can make the payment, sign up for community work or go before the court if you have to.

"We will encourage people to pay their fines.

"It's far better to discuss your options with us than leave the fines unpaid."
