Released by the City of Tyler:

TYLER,TX – During the first week of the statewide warrant sweep, 767 warrants have been cleared and $100,573 has been collected in Tyler alone. The value of the cleared warrants is over $260,000 and is a result of 82 arrests and 286 people voluntarily taking care of warrants.

In an effort to bring closure to unresolved warrants, the Tyler Municipal Court is participating in the statewide warrant sweep that will continue through the middle of March.  More than 250 agencies across Texas are taking part in this effort to resolve outstanding warrants.

Arrests during the sweep have focused on warrants from all of the participating jurisdictions.  Although the concentration is on Class C charges, which include traffic, criminal parking, penal code and City ordinance violations, higher charge warrants have also been served. 

Affected persons are urged to contact the appropriate jurisdiction to dispose of their cases voluntarily.

For assistance with resolving an outstanding warrant, contact the Municipal Court at (903)531-1266. Warrants can also be paid on line at www.cityoftyler.org under the "I Want To" menu at the top of the page. A kiosk in the lobby of the Municipal Court is also available for those paying with credit cards.

The Court is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m.
