TYLER — Tyler has joined other Texas cities and counties in participating in a statewide warrant sweep. Agencies will work together during this time to make arrests and collect fines for outstanding warrants. Officials say the Tyler Marshal’s Office is one of the most technologically advanced agencies utilizing License Plate Recognition cameras and warrant mapping software to locate and track wanted persons. The Statewide Sweep runs for two weeks. During this time, according to officials, marshals will concentrate their efforts to serve as many warrants as possible. Tyler Municipal Court will actually extend this Warrant Sweep for two additional weeks after the Statewide Warrant Sweep has ended.
Tyler Municipal Court will have extended hours during the sweep, 7:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday. Any persons with warrants for their arrest are encouraged to contact their local court to pay the warrants before an arrest is made. In Tyler, you can pay online at http://www.cityoftyler.org or at the physical Court located at 813 N. Broadway. Also, you may call the court for more information at (903) 531-1266.
