Statewide law enforcement agencies and courts are once again conducting the Great Texas Warrant Roundup.
The roundup is designed to target thousands of defendants with warrants from more than 250 participating jurisdictions. Numerous counties, justices of the peace, and municipalities of all sizes are participating in the roundup.
Courts and participating agencies began advertising and contacting individuals about their efforts on Friday. Agencies will step up efforts to actively serve warrants starting Saturday, March 7th.
Under state law, people that appear before a court and make a good faith effort to resolve their outstanding Class C warrants are afforded safe harbor and are not subject to arrest. Additionally, if a judgment is rendered against a person unable to pay the judgment, that person can request a judge to assess their ability to pay and offer alternative means to satisfy the judgment.
Anyone with warrants is encouraged to contact the courts that issued the warrants to resolve their cases voluntarily, before they are bound to appear by arrest.
