The Fort Worth Municipal Court has declared February Warrant Forgiveness Month.

Individuals who voluntarily appear at a court location in February and take action on their cases may be eligible for community service or a reduction in the fine amount based on their ability to pay.

In addition, the court is continuing its Court in the Community initiative to bring the mobile court to sites across the city in February. View a list of upcoming events.

“Over the last two years we have been able to help more than 10,000 residents address close to 40,000 outstanding warrants without fear of arrest,” said William F. Rumuly, interim court director.

Fort Worth is a Safe Harbor, meaning that residents visiting a Municipal Court location will not be arrested for outstanding warrants issued by the Fort Worth Municipal Court. The court encourages anyone with outstanding citations to participate in this initiative to help resolve their cases.

“Warrant Forgiveness Month is a great opportunity for people to take care of their outstanding citations. Please come see us,” said Chief Judge Danny Rodgers.
