Beginning on Saturday,
Constable Joe Wright and his Deputies from Collin County Constable Precinct 4, will be joining more than 300 other law enforcement agencies the 2016
Great Texas Warrant Round-up.
The round-up is an annual, statewide effort to get folks to clear up unpaid fines or tickets and avoid possible arrest for outstanding warrants across Texas. For those who don't resolve warrants soon, they can become subject to arrest during the roundup. Those stopped while driving the vehicles could also face having their vehicle impounded and incur additional. Constables here are advising residents that they can avoid arrest by clearing any warrants up now.
The Precinct 4 Constable's office is the only Collin County agency participating in the roundup this year. However, many local police departments are joining in, including those in Allen, Plano, Frisco, McKinney, and Prosper.
"The goal of this roundup is to hold people accountable and to pay the fines that they owe to the courts, not to take people to jail," explained Constable Wright, whose deputies will be assisting the City of Prosper during the roundup.
For those unable to pay fines now, authorities advise that they contact the courts to discuss options that may be available to resolve the matter. Collin County posts its
Active Warrants online, which can help direct people to the right court. Payments may be
made online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
