2018 Great Texas Warrant Round-Up

The Cities of Alvin, Fulshear, Galveston, LaMarque, Santa Fe and Texas City will be among more than 250 law enforcement jurisdictions across Texas that will be participating in the “2018 Great Texas Warrant Round-Up”. Law Enforcement Agencies statewide will join other regional participants in this statewide annual event, which officially began 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.
