COLLEGE STATION, Tx (KYLE) — In an effort to clear thousands of collectively outstanding warrants totaling millions of dollars from the City of College Station and the offices of the Brazos County justices of the peace, a warrant amnesty period will occur Feb. 11 through March 1.
The amnesty period - three weeks long, rather than the usual two weeks - allows citizens with outstanding warrants to avoid paying a $50 per case warrant fee if fines are paid in full. No partial payment schedules will be allowed if citizens want to avoid the $50 fee. The City of College Station accepts cash, cashier's check, credit cards, money orders, and personal checks. Outstanding warrants cannot be paid via College Station's online citation payment system.
Law enforcement officials across Texas will conduct a "warrant roundup" March 2-10. City marshals, police officers, reserve police officers and constables will arrest citizens who failed to pay their fines during the designated amnesty period.
The College Station Municipal Court publishes a list of all outstanding warrants at cstx.gov/warrants, which allows anyone to check their warrant status if a citation was issued by the College Station Police Department. Citizens also may contact the City of College Station Municipal Court at 979.764.3683.
