Time to take care of your warrants

June 15, 2009 10:14:18 AM PDT
The Houston Police Department and court officials have announced details on their plan to arrest those with outstanding city warrants.There are about half a million people in the city of Houston with outstanding warrants. This is part of HPD's annual effort to round those people up.

About 25 police officers will be on the streets looking for people with outstanding warrants. The sweep will start very soon, but HPD isn't disclosing the exact start date. In addition to targeting people on the streets, officers may come to your home or your place of employment to arrest you if you haven't taken care of those warrants. Consider this your warning.

There is no statute of limitations on warrants, so even if you have a warrant that is several years old, the message from police is to take care of it.

HPD Assistant Chief John Trevino said, "Please, come forward and take care of your business, because these men and women in blue will be out in force and will be knocking on your door."

There are several ways to take care of your outstanding warrants. You can call 713-837-0311, or simply call 311, or visit texasonline.state.tx.us.
