GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas—Cities in Galveston County are involved in the 2013 Great Texas Warrant Roundup, a statewide effort to serve outstanding arrest warrants.

Cities in the county could potentially collect more than $35 million in unpaid fines from 70,000 outstanding municipal court warrants.

The program is designed to give people a two-week window to pay their fines or set up a payment plan without fear of arrest.

Dickinson police officer EJ Juarez said law enforcement agencies have suspended warrant services so officers can attempt to contact people on the list to remind them to make payments.

But starting March 2, he said, all bets are off.
