Ponca City Police Department Revitalizes Warrant Program

Ponca City Now - September 25, 2013 9:29 am

A revitalized program at the Ponca City police department has made it an officers sole job to get warrants paid.

Sherry Bowers, the departments public information officer said there were too many unpaid warrants.

And sergeant Jerry Hall has made a dent in the list since Sept. 5.

40 outstanding warrants have either been paid or arrangements have been made.

A total of over $13,000.

Bowers says Hall is willing to make special arrangements with people.

“He can effectively pull that warrant off and work with you, so you can get that taken care of, so you don’t lose your job, so you don’t get your car impounded and so you don’t come to jail," Bowers said.

Warrants are the only bill you can go to jail for so check if you are on the warrant list at poncacityok.gov.

And you can offer a tip of someones whereabouts by calling 580-762-5100.

There are money rewards for helping locate a person with a warrant.
