Arlington Municipal Court

Do you have an outstanding citation at the Arlington Municipal Court and want to know what your options are? Do you have a warrant and are worried about being arrested and don’t know where to turn? The Arlington Municipal Court wants to help explain your options and work with you to resolve your citation. The Arlington Municipal Court is proud to announce that we will be conducting a Citation and Warrant Resolution Drive from Feb. 22 to March 15, 2021.

The Arlington Municipal Court continues to be a Safe Harbor Court, which means that anyone may appear in court at any time to resolve their outstanding cases without the fear of being arrested for Arlington Municipal Court warrants. If a warrant has been issued on the citation, there are still options. The City of Arlington Municipal Court will waive collection agency fees on warrants paid in full during the campaign. Anyone with an outstanding citation is encouraged to call, email, visit the City website, or come to the court in-person to take the necessary steps to resolve the matter.

“The safety and well-being of all who interact with the Arlington Municipal Court is of the highest importance. Our goal is to work with the community and explain that there are options available, both online and in-person, for defendants to comply with court obligations,” Court Administrator Jake Medrano said.

The City of Arlington Municipal Court remains open to the public and is following the normal business hours of 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for court clerk customer services and payments. The Arlington Municipal Court is located inside the City Tower at 101 S. Mesquite St., at the northeast corner of Abram and Mesquite streets. Please note that In-person hearings and trials are currently suspended.

The Municipal Court continues to enforce strict social distancing and sanitation protocols in all public areas in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The Arlington Municipal Court is the first court in the nation to have achieved the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ facility accreditation, the gold standard for prepared facilities. GBAC STAR™ is the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response, and recovery accreditation for facilities. To achieve GBAC STAR™ accreditation, the Court demonstrated compliance with the program’s 20 core elements, which ranged from standard operating procedures and risk assessment strategies to personal protective equipment and emergency preparedness and response measures.

“The Court has taken extensive measures to protect all participants through social distancing, hygiene, and cleaning protocols. Providing access and procedural justice through both in-person and virtual hearings helps to ensure that all persons may address their matters before the Court,” Medrano said.
