AMARILLO — Amarillo Police along with the City of Amarillo Municipal Court will begin the Texas State Warrant Roundup starting today.  

Today, people with outstanding Amarillo Municipal Court warrants will receive a warrant notice postcard 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.

On March 9th, 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 35,070 Municipal Court warrants outstanding.  Last year, 3565 warrants were cleared during Warrant Round Up.    

The Municipal Court will be open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Thursdays, the court remains open until 7 p.m.

If you have questions about outstanding warrants, call the Municipal Court at 378-9342.
Traffic and parking citation fines, including those with warrants, can be paid online by selecting “Traffic Citation Online Payment Service” from the same menu or by selecting “Pay Now” included on the warrant list database.

The Municipal Court has received information about reported “scams” reported in other jurisdictions in Texas in which people posing as police, court, or city employees contact people with outstanding traffic citations and attempt to secure payment over the phone.  

They do so by asking the person with outstanding warrants for bank, credit card, or other financial information.  

Neither the City of Amarillo nor the Amarillo Police Department will ever ask you for any financial information over the phone.  The will never allow you to make arrangement to pay any ticket or warrant charges over the phone.   

If you are contacted by anyone that informs you that you have an outstanding warrant AND asks to arrange payment over the telephone, it is an attempt to defraud you.  Hang up immediately.
