The City of League City is teaming up with law enforcement agencies and courts from more than 300 jurisdictions across Texas to host the 2016 Great Texas Warrant Round up beginning March 5, 2016.
The Roundup is designed to target thousands of defendants with traffic, parking, city ordinance, penal code and higher charge warrants from participating jurisdictions. As the largest joint operation of its kind, the focus of the roundup is bring individuals into compliance with court orders.
Notices for outstanding warrants were recently mailed to individuals who have open warrants with the City of League City.
“Outstanding warrant notices were sent to more than 5,872 individuals,” said Gina Vega, League City’s Warrant Coordinator. “We have also placed phone calls to anyone with an active warrant.”
Law enforcement agencies, to include the League City Police Department, will aggressively target those defendants on the warrant list once the roundup begins.
“We encourage individuals to voluntarily contact the League City Municipal Court to resolve any warrant issues by March 4,” said Vega. “If an active warrant is not resolved by then, our warrant officer will pick-up individuals at their home, workplace or business. Additionally, individuals who are stopped by any law enforcement agency participating in the Warrant Round up will be picked up and required to make arrangements to clear up their warrant.”
A special task force has also been established to solely focus on locating defendants with outstanding warrants through a license plate recognition program and whose parked vehicle has been documented multiple times at specific locations.
