The City of McKinney is participating in a statewide warrant roundup beginning Friday, Feb. 14. Anyone with an outstanding warrant or citation is urged to take care of it as soon as possible to avoid arrest. The initiative in McKinney will primarily target outstanding class C warrants, although all warrants are subject to be served.
“We expect to resolve a large number of warrants again this year. Anyone with an outstanding warrant could be arrested at home, work, or school,” said City Warrant Officer Tim Rich. “These warrants will not go away, so we always encourage people to take care of their violations rather than face arrest.”
More than 300 agencies across Texas will be participating in this roundup effort. Agencies participating in the McKinney roundup include: The McKinney Warrant Division, McKinney Municipal Court and the McKinney Citizens on Patrol.
A payment plan for warrants will be available during the warrant roundup only. Violators can pay half the full amount owed and the remaining balance within 30 days. For more information on how to pay citations and avoid arrest during the warrant roundup, contact the McKinney Municipal Court at 972-547-7679, or appear in person Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Thursdays 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. at 130 S. Chestnut St. To view a current list of outstanding warrants or to make a payment online, visit www.mckinneytexas.org/warrants
