PALESTINE — Representatives of law enforcement agencies and courts from more than 240 jurisdictions across Texas will combine efforts to host the fifth annual Great Texas Warrant Roundup beginning Saturday, March 1.
The state-wide joint effort targets people with Class C offense such as traffic, parking, city ordinance and penal code violations.
Thousands of notices were recently mailed by participating agencies. Numerous counties and municipalities of all sizes will participate in the roundup. Specific information as to the number of outstanding warrants, how to take care of warrants prior to arrest and any other special roundup activities or events may be obtained by contacting the representative for each agency.
Affected persons are urged to contact the appropriate jurisdiction during the next two weeks to dispose of their cases voluntarily to avoid the inconvenience and embarrassment of arrest at home or work in front of family, friends or co-workers.
Anyone with outstanding warrants or questions may contact the Palestine Municipal Court at 903-731-8433 or Palestine City Marshal Mark Harcrow at 903-731-8476.
