If I have a warrant, will I get arrested when I appear in person voluntarily at the court?

Individuals who appear voluntarily at the Canyon Municipal Court will not be arrested. If you are unable to pay the violation in full you will need to appear at 1317 4th Avenue, Canyon, TX to discuss payment options.  THIS COURT OFFERS YOU A “SAFE HARBOR” TO TURN YOURSELF IN ON CLASS C WARRANTS ISSUED BY THIS COURT:

In order to promote justice, ensure due process and the equal treatment of all persons, some of whom may be indigent or facing financial hardships, and to help clear outstanding arrest warrants and capias pro fine warrants, this court has a policy that it will not arrest or jail any person who voluntarily surrenders herself/himself to this court on warrants issued by our court if you make a good-faith effort to resolve the case before YOU ARE ARRESTED AND THE WARRANT IS EXECUTED. In other words, if you have active Class C misdemeanor warrants issued by this court and you voluntarily come in person to court YOU WILL NOT BE ARRESTED, THE WARRANTS(S) WILL BE RECALLED, AND YOU WILL BE GIVEN A COURT DATE TO SPEAK TO THE JUDGE ABOUT YOUR CASE, WITHOUT FEAR OF BEING ARRESTED.
