The City of Pearland will be among more than 300 jurisdictions across Texas who participates in the "2019 Great Texas Warrant Round-Up," which officially begins Saturday, February 23.
The Pearland Municipal Court and the Pearland Police Department will join other regional participants in this statewide annual event which targets people who have outstanding warrants.
The City of Pearland Municipal Courts have thousands of active warrants which need clearing and Municipal Court officials are encouraging defendants to take advantage of the payment options available to settle outstanding warrants. No amnesty is being offered in conjunction with the Round-Up effort.
Once the warrant period begins on Saturday, March 9th, Pearland Police Department officers will actively search for those persons on the warrant list and arrests can take place at any location, including the defendant's home, school or workplace.
Notices have been mailed to all defendants with active warrants pending against them. Payments can be made online at www.municipalonlinep ayments.com/pearland tx and in person at the Municipal Court located at 2555 Cullen Parkway in Pearland, Texas. Payments can also be mailed to the Pearland Municipal Court at P.O. Box 84609, Pearland, Texas 77584. For more information about warrants or citations, contact the Pearland Municipal Court at 281.997.5900.
"THOUSANDS of active warrants" just in Pearland?? How long did it take to accumulate a backlog like that? Last year an officer was shot and killed trying to serve a warrant, about a mile from where I live.
