GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Glendale Police Department and the Glendale City Court are hosting a "Warrant Wipe Out" program on June 12, 13 and 14.

Those with outstanding misdemeanor arrest warrants in Glendale can take care of them without facing arrest by attending the program and paying any fines owed.

According to a press release, the program wants to be seen as a safe, non-jail option for those outstanding misdemeanor warrants, many of which are for traffic issues.

The Arizona Motor Vehicle Department will also be on site to assist with any driver's license issues and to get participants information on getting their licenses reinstated.

In the weeks following the Wipe Out, Glendale police officers will conduct a large scale warrant round up to arrest people who still have outstanding misdemeanors and don't choose to participate in the program, according to a press release.

The court will require identification for any cases that haven't been adjudicated yet and for posting bonds with a credit card, so those attending should bring some form of government ID.

On June 12 and 13, the program will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. On June 14, it will be held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Wipe Out will be located in the Glendale City Court building at 5711 W. Glendale Ave.
