CLEBURNE (CBSDFW.COM) – If you have a warrant out for your arrest in Cleburne, police are giving you one last opportunity to avoid jail time.

The City of Cleburne will be offering a “get out of jail” free card leading up to its warrant roundup from Feb. 14 through March 1. Law enforcement agencies throughout the state will also participate in the roundup.

To avoid jail time, offenders must pay their outstanding fees prior to the roundup date next Friday.

“The goal is to ask those who are facing warrants from the City of Cleburne to pay their fines and eliminate any further hassle or embarrassment,” Court Administrator Dianna Faulkenberry said.

Beginning Feb. 22, officers will be going to the homes or businesses of offenders to make the arrests.

The city says there are currently 2,207 outstanding warrants totaling over $870,000 in fines.

“This is not designed to simply make money for the city, it helps to eliminate the huge backlog of paperwork that currently exists within the system,” said Faulkenberry.

A complete list of people subject to the warrant roundup is available on the city’s website.
