2018 Great Texas Warrant Roundup Begins February 24, 2018
The Frisco Police Department and Frisco Municipal Court will once again participate in the annual Great Texas Warrant Round-up. Cities across Texas will be joining together to actively serve outstanding arrest warrants beginning February 24, 2018.
While warrants are regularly served by each jurisdiction, this combined effort provides greater opportunities for warrant service. If you have outstanding warrants anywhere in Texas, you should handle them as soon as possible or face the possibility of having police officers arrive at your workplace or residence. The City of Frisco will be assigning a group of officers to a special task force with the sole task of tracking down individuals with outstanding Frisco warrants and bringing them to justice.
If you believe you have unpaid tickets or an active warrant out of the City of Frisco, you can contact the Frisco Municipal Court at 972.292.5555 or pay for your warrant online at www.fmcpayments.com today before you are greeted by a Frisco police officer at your front door or place of employment. Under Texas Law, individuals that appear before a court and make a good faith effort to resolve their outstanding Class C warrants are afforded safe harbor and not subject to arrest.
