Do you have outstanding traffic warrants in Greenville? Now is the time to take care of them. The Greenville Police Department is hosting their annual Warrant Amnesty Program. Greenville Police Department Chief Justin Lovvorne and Captain Danny Bond have slated Feb. 12 through April 30 as a Warrant Amnesty period.

The Amnesty period is for anyone who has any existing warrants. Capt. Bond is working with the community to help decrease the monetary amount owed and to help prevent arrests for outstanding warrants.

The program is designed to help those who are unable to pay fines. People could receive up to 33% off the total amount of the fines or even work out a payment program.

Chief Lovvorne stated “It is an incentive for people who are falling under hard times. The program gives them the opportunity to not have to worry about their next encounter with police. It’s about giving our community peace of mind.”

Capt. Bond said, “We are reaching out to the community to help them clear their warrants. This has been a successful program for the community and has been held for the last five years.”

Chief Lovvorne and Capt. Bond are looking forward to helping the members of the community to have a clean financial slate and better peace of mind.

Anyone who has an outstanding warrant or is unsure if they do may call Capt. Bond at 334-382-7461 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. or 334-437-1827.
