Law Enforcement Agencies statewide will join other regional participants in this statewide annual event, which officially begins Friday, February 9, 2018, to locate individuals with outstanding warrants. The roundup is designed to target thousands of defendants with warrants from the above mentioned jurisdictions as well as many others. Municipal Court officials are encouraging defendants to take advantage of the options available to settle outstanding warrants immediately. Under Texas Law, individuals that appear before a court and make a good faith effort to resolve their outstanding Class C Warrants are afforded safe harbor and not subject to arrest. Additionally, if a judgment is rendered against an individual who is unable to pay the judgment, the individual may request a judge assess their ability to pay and offer alternative means to satisfy the judgment. Individuals with warrants are encouraged to contact the appropriate court to resolve their cases voluntarily before they are compelled to appear by arrest. Once the arrest period begins on February 24, 2018 officers will aggressively seek out wanted individuals. Arrests can take place at any location, including the defendant’s home, school or workplace. For more information about warrants defendants must contact the appropriate court. 2018 Great Warrant Round-Up FAQ’s: Why are you doing this? To close cases for which all other means of resolution have been unsuccessful. Why do this now? Statewide cooperation with other entities provides broader public awareness. Tax refund season creates better opportunity for some defendants to have the ability to pay their fines. How many warrants are outstanding? This number is not constant and changes all the time. How can I find out if I have warrants? Contact the court in that particular jurisdiction for further information. What are my options if I find out I do have warrants? Contact the court in that particular jurisdiction for further information. If I come to court to pay, will I be arrested? No, citizens are encouraged to come in voluntarily to resolve cases prior to the arrest period. Will there be an amnesty offered to reduce the cost of any of the fines or fees? Not at this time. If I want to pay for my warrants, what are my payment options? Contact the court in that particular jurisdiction for further information. What forms of payment do you accept? Contact the Court in that particular jurisdiction for further information. After I pay, how long will it take for the information to be removed from DPS records? The Department of Public Safety will clear holds on driver’s licenses within 7 to 10 business days.
