Warrant Amnesty Program Ends Next Week

(Credit: Austin Police Department)

The 2019 Austin Municipal Court and Downtown Community Court Warrant Amnesty Program ends Feb. 28. Thousands have already taken advantage of the Warrant Amnesty Program this month.

Individuals who resolve active warrants will have warrant fees waived; however, they must contact the court to take advantage of this program. No officers will be sent out to take defendants into custody during this time frame, and those who come to any Austin Municipal Court or Community Court location voluntarily will not be arrested. This program applies only to active cases in front of the Austin Municipal Court or Downtown Austin Community Court.

There are multiple walk-in dockets scheduled Mondays through Fridays during the amnesty period. Judges are available at the walk-in dockets for people to address their cases. No appointments are needed during these walk-in dockets.
