Representatives of law enforcement agencies and courts from more than 250 jurisdictions across Texas announced combined efforts to host the fifth annual Great Texas Warrant Roundup. It began Saturday, February 11.
The roundup is designed to target thousands of defendants with traffic, parking, city ordinance, penal code and higher charge warrants from participating jurisdictions. It is believed to be the largest joint operation of its kind with arrests expected to continue for several days.
Hundreds of thousands of notices were recently mailed statewide by participating entities.
Numerous counties, justices of the peace, constables and municipalities of all sizes will participate in the roundup.
Specific information as to the number of outstanding warrants, how to take care of warrants prior to arrest and any other special roundup activities or events may be obtained by contacting the representative for each agency.
Affected persons are urged to contact the appropriate jurisdiction or jurisdictions during the next two weeks to dispose of their cases voluntarily to avoid the inconvenience and embarrassment of arrest at home or work in front of family, friends or co-workers.
