image003Representatives of law enforcement agencies and courts from more than 300 jurisdictions across Texas announced combined efforts to host the 2016 Great Texas Warrant Roundup beginning Saturday, March 5th.

The roundup is designed to target thousands of defendants with traffic, parking, city ordinance, penal code, and higher charge warrants from participating jurisdictions.  The focus is to bring these individuals into compliance with court orders; there are multiple options that are available to do so.

Hundreds of thousands of notices were recently mailed statewide by participating entities.  Numerous counties, justices of the peace, constables, and municipalities of all sizes will participate in the roundup.  It is believed to be the largest joint operation of its kind.

There are over 2,500 active warrants in the White Oak Municipal Court; these warrants are valued at over $990,000 which includes fines, fees, and State mandated court costs.   Individuals are strongly encouraged to come into the court to resolve their obligations voluntarily.   There will be a scheduled docket March, 3, 2016 starting at 1:00 p.m. to allow anyone to walk in and take care of any outstanding warrants before arrest are made. The City judge will be available that day.

Payment plans will be an option for anyone who voluntarily appears at the White Oak Municipal Court to resolve their case(s) and will not be arrested.

Specific information to your case(s) is available by calling the White Oak Municipal Court at 903-759-2061. If you have an outstanding warrant you are urged to contact the court during the next two weeks to dispose of these cases voluntarily to avoid the inconvenience and embarrassment of arrest.
