February 13, 2012 marks the start of the 6th Annual Great Texas Warrant Roundup. The City of San Antonio, along with over 200 other jurisdictions across Texas will combine forces in what is believed to be the largest joint warrant round up of this type in Texas. The multi-jurisdictional warrant roundup will begin on Saturday, February 25 and will continue for several weeks.
The Warrant Roundup has two phases:
- The first phase, which begins on February 13th and ends February 24th, will consist of a grace period (Warrant Calls). During this time, anyone who has outstanding warrants is encouraged to resolve their case without penalty of arrest.
- The last phase, which begins February 25th, is the Enforcement Period. During this time, individuals will be “rounded up” at their homes, work and around town and brought to the court to address their outstanding warrants before a judge.
Last year the City of San Antonio closed 26,000 out of roughly 150,000 outstanding warrants. It is not too late to take care of outstanding warrants and avoid a visit from the authorities.
