Great Texas Warrant Roundup is Coming

The Great Texas Warrant Roundup is coming, so if you have unpaid traffic or non-traffic Class C citations now is a good time to take care of them.

The dates for the roundup will be announced Friday, though it typically begins around March 1 and runs for a week or two.

In 2013, about 250 law enforcement agencies across the state took part in the annual roundup.  This year, about 300 agencies, dozens of which are in North Texas, are expected to participate.  See the list here.

Drivers who haven't settled warrants could be subject to a hold being placed on vehicle registrations with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, as part of the Scofflaw Program, and renewals for driver's licenses can be denied — this is in addition to being arrested and jailed.

Meantime, those wanted for outstanding citations can make arrangements with their respective courts before being arrested. Outstanding citations can be paid in person at the city's respective courthouses or, in many cases, can be made online.

In Arlington, the court is waiving collection agency fees on all warrants paid in full between Feb. 14 and March 9.
