DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Over 150 law enforcement agencies across North Texas are preparing to participate in the annual Great Texas Warrant Roundup set to being on Saturday.

The joint effort targets individuals with outstanding traffic and non-traffic citations and warrants, including everything from littering citations, public intoxication citations, class c assaults, and misdemeanor thefts. And if you received a citation for an overgrown lawn, you’re not exempt.

Chief Deputy Paul Hansen at the Dallas City Marshal’s Office also warns that relocating alone will not protect offenders.

“We all have a regional agreement that allows us to arrest people for other agency warrants and hold that person for a time,” said Hansen.

DPS Trooper Doug Gilman emphasizes that, though many will be arrested, they would prefer offenders pay their fines and lessen the burden on overcrowded jails.

“With the economy struggling — the cities, the county and the state — those fines would go a long way,” said Gilman.

Most municipalities offer a community service option or a payment plan — if you come forward.

Persons with outstanding citations are encouraged to contact local authorities to settle their fines in advance of Saturday’s deadline.
