You have to go down to the police department in person and bring some ID. Go to the records department. If you have a warrant for your arrest, expect the police to handcuff you on the spot. However, if it is for a minor offense, such as failure to appear for a traffic violation, bring some money with you and tell them you are there to arrange payment, give them some money and a lot of times they will go ahead and let you go.

I'm new here in Georgia, so I really don't know much about our legal system here, just my experiences from back home. Georgia is very strict compared to California, where I just moved from.
It sounds like a failure to appear, which was issued by the judge. Before going down to the police station, she may want to go to the court house, since that is where the warrant would have originated, and be prepared to pay on the spot, or work out a payment plan.

Their not gonna work out a payment plan if you've got a warrant for FAILURE TO APPEAR...you have already proven that you can't be trusted for $#!T!

Yep, Georgia is pretty strict, so I am not surprised. In California, a few of my son's friends had to do that and the fact that you took the initiative to show up to clear it up, allowed them to make payments.
Then again, California is pretty lenient when it comes to penalties.

Get pulled over and you'll get a free warrant check. And if you show up at the police station with a possible warrant, you had better be prepared to go to jail. The best way is to get an attorney to check for you.

I've called on a payphone to any police station (when they're not real busy, like at 2AM). And they will usually tell you. They'll ask you your name and what town you live in.

Seriously!! This has to be a joke...No one can be that unaware..

If you have been stopped for expired tags,etc you know if you have a warrant.Get stopped again then you won't have to worry about a lawyer,or going to work the next day.I can't see getting a lawyer unless this person did more than not show up for court..that is the only way a warrant is issued.

I still don't believe this post is legit..

This is true..even if they turn themselves in they will go to jail until they have a hearing.

If one doesn't turn themselves in make sure you have some P.J's in your car for the pajama party that will be in your pajamas when you're arrested.

THEN,they ask you nicely to hold on,and at that time they dispatch an officer(hand cuffs in hand) to your location.

Well that's easy to fix, get your cousin to go to the payphone and make the call while you stay at home and watch the game! Make sure he has his id on him, though...

missy; it can't be too hard. Just go up to a cop & show 'em your drivers liscence (unless it's been REVOKED due to DRUNK DRIVING) or other pic. ID, & ask 'em! It's that simple, hon.

If you are black, then yes you have a warrant. White people are the only ones who have to call or go there because they may not have warrants.

To be honest...they won't tell you if you have a warrant. Every now and again, you can call the clerk's office and ask them the question...you may get am understanding soul on the line...you may not. I would call three different times before giving up. How ever you can get intelligent with it and tell the person at the "Clerk"s Office"...that you were issued a citation for driving on expired tags. You didn't have the money to pay the ticket at the time, but you would like to get it resolved. Ask them to tell you how much you need....and they will most likely tell you where to go pay the ticket. If you do it for your friend, you'll need a copy of the citation in your hand to give information from it. If you approach this the right way....you can get the info. Just stay away from asking..."If you have a warrant"...you'll get shut down or told...."we do not give information for warrants over the phone". Hope this helps.

Bad advice. This would become "a collar".

OBVIOUSLY you are not used to dealing with absent minded individuals. Hope you never become one.

By the way, you need to study your English better.
It's "they're" not "their".
