Come bright and early in the morning, officers are set to knock on the doors of people who have active warrants.

"We always approach with caution," Harris County Precinct One Constable Alan Rosen said.

More than 30,000 Harris County residents have active warrants. Those add up to thousands of dollars in unpaid fines and penalties.

Officers will go door-to-door, even places of employment, to track down offenders. The sheriff's office is prepared to take offenders straight to jail.

"We want to get people off the street who are not taking care of their business," Rosen added.

Consider this your last warning.

To find out if you have a warrant:

For Houston Municipal Court warrants, dial Houston's Helpline at 3-1-1, visit the website at or visit any City of Houston Municipal Court location. For information about warrants issued out of the Harris County Justice Courts, visit their website at Individuals with warrants in jurisdictions other than the City of Houston and Harris County Justice Courts, should contact those jurisdictions for information about how to clear outstanding warrants.
