Avoid getting caught in the Great Texas Warrant Roundup! Law enforcement agencies and courts statewide have combined efforts to host the 2020 Great Texas Warrant Roundup. Individuals can expect advertisements and contact from courts beginning Friday, February 14, 2020. Agencies will be actively serving warrants beginning Saturday, March 7.
The Roundup is designed to target thousands of defendants with warrants from more than 250 participating jurisdictions. Numerous counties, justices of the peace and municipalities of all sizes will participate in the roundup.
Under Texas law, individuals that appear before a court and make a good faith effort to resolve their Class C warrants are not subject to arrest. Additionally, if a judgment is made against an individual who is unable to pay the fine, the individual may request a judge to assess their ability to pay and offer alternative means to satisfy the judgment.
Individuals with warrant(s) are encouraged to contact the court(s) that issued the warrant(s) to resolve the cases voluntarily before they are compelled to appear by arrest. Once the roundup starts, you can be arrested at any time or any place. If you voluntarily appear at the Azle Municipal Court to take care of your tickets, you will NOT be arrested.
You have multiple ways to pay your fines:
- via the Azle Municipal Court website
- by phone with a credit card at 1-800-444-1187. Contact Azle Municipal Court at 817-444-2541 in order to get your citation information needed to pay fines over the phone.
- in person at the Court office at Azle City Hall, 505 West Main Street, Building 1, Azle, Texas, Mon – Fri between 8 am and 5 pm.
Azle Court will have extended business hours from 7:30 am - 5:30 pm March 2 - 6, 2020. And will be open from 8 am - 2 pm on Saturday, March 7, 2020.
