Warrant Round-Up Starts Today
By Karl Wehmhoener | firstname.lastname@example.org
AMARILLO -- It's that time of year again for the Amarillo Police and the City of Amarillo Municipal Court team up in the Texas State Warrant Roundup.
Beginning today, anyone with outstanding Amarillo Municipal Court warrants will be receiving warrant notice postcards in the mail. These cards inform people that have outstanding municipal warrants to contact the court and clear up the warrants before APD officers begin serving the warrants.
Beginning March 3rd, the Amarillo Police Department will assign police officers to find the people with outstanding warrants. These uniformed officers will locate people at their homes, places of employment, or wherever they can be contacted.
There are currently 35,638 Municipal Court warrants outstanding. Last year, 4,416 warrants were cleared during Warrant Round Up.
The public can view a complete list of all Municipal Court warrants on the City of Amarillo’s Municipal Court web page. Select “Court Issued Warrants” from the menu on the right side of the page. That page will provide information about when a warrant is issued and how to resolve the warrant. At the bottom of the page is a link to a list of all active warrants.
Traffic and parking citation fines, including those with warrants, can be paid online by selecting “Traffic Citation Online Payment Service” from the same menu.
If you have questions about outstanding warrants, call the Municipal Court at 378-9342.
