Los Altos Police Department Participating in Operation Second Chance 2014

Beginning December 1 through December 31, 2014, the Los Altos Police Department will be participating in Operation Second Chance.  This countywide program provides individuals with non-violent misdemeanor criminal and traffic warrants an opportunity to self-surrender on warrants in lieu of being booked into the County Jail.

Individuals can go to any Santa Clara County law enforcement agency to receive their warrant citation, which will require a new “Promise to Appear” court date.  Operation Second Chance is directed towards most misdemeanor warrants, no matter what the bail is, including those warrants stamped “No Cite and Release” and “No Bail”.

The following warrants DO NOT qualify for this program:

  • Felony warrants
  • Warrants involving violence (including all domestic violence warrants)
  • Warrants involving a firearm
  • Warrants involving resisting arrest
  • Warrants involving giving false information to a peace officer

Persons with these types of warrants however, are urged to take this opportunity to turn themselves in so they can resolve their matter in court.

Operation Second Chance has been tremendously successful over the past eight years.  More than 2,400 individuals in Santa Clara County have taken advantage of the program and avoided spending the holidays in jail by self-surrendering.  The program remains countywide with all law enforcement agencies participating.  Individuals with outstanding misdemeanor warrants can go to any Police and Sheriff’s stations in Santa Clara County and surrender themselves on the outstanding warrants and be released instead of going to jail.

For more information or questions contact the Los Altos Police Department at (650) 947-2770.
