Contact: Officer Douglas Greene 207-7579 Date: February 19, 2016 Release No: 16-035
Chief McManus announced today that San Antonio will join more than 350 agencies across Texas for the 10th Annual Statewide Warrant Roundup. Individuals with outstanding Class C fines related to misdemeanor violations such as traffic violations and City ordinance violations will have from February 20, 2016 until March 6, 2016 to resolve their warrants under a pre-roundup grace period without fear of arrest.
“Please note that during the grace period, if an officer stops someone with municipal court warrants, they will be arrested. The grace period applies only to those who go to Municipal Court to resolve their warrants.” SAPD Chief William McManus
During the next two weeks, members of the SAPD Volunteers in Policing program will be calling to remind people that they have warrants and explain to them the options of resolving them. In addition, Municipal Court will mail notices informing individuals of their outstanding warrants.
During the pre-roundup grace period, individuals with outstanding traffic warrants have a variety of options to pay their citations:
