Now is the time to take care of any outstanding City of Midland warrants in order to avoid being arrested during a statewide roundup.
The City of Midland Municipal Court, in conjunction with the Midland Police Department and more than 300 law enforcement agencies, will participate in the 2016 Great Texas Warrant Roundup starting March 7. This event joins together cities all over Texas in a combined effort to serve outstanding warrants.
Notices have been mailed to defendants with outstanding warrants notifying them that they have an active warrant and to contact the Court before being arrested. Citizens with warrants in jurisdictions other than the City of Midland should contact those jurisdictions for information about how to clear those warrants.
Starting March 7, Midland police officers and Court warrant officers will begin actively serving warrants. These officers will locate people at their homes, place of employment or anywhere else they may be found.
“Warrants are issued when all other options have failed and defendants have forgotten or chosen to ignore their citations, payment plans or community service,” Municipal Court Administrator Jake Medrano said. “We are encouraging defendants on warrant to handle their outstanding obligations and come in and find out what options might be available to them before they are arrested.”
If you are concerned that you have an outstanding City of Midland warrant, you are encouraged to contact the Midland Municipal Court immediately to find out what options or arrangements might be available. You can avoid the lines by going online to pay your citation at www.midlandmunicipalcourt.com. For warrant information, you may contact the Court at 432-685-7308 or 432-685-7314.
Individuals with outstanding City of Midland warrants have a variety of options to pay their citations. Cash, Money Order, Visa or MasterCard are accepted. Personal checks are not accepted for violations on warrant.
