Got Warrants? Operation Second Chance running now through December 31

Now through December 31, 2016, the City of Los Altos Police Department will be participating in Operation Second Chance. As part of this county-wide special program, individuals with non-violent misdemeanor criminal and traffic warrants can receive a citation with a new court date 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” in 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.

More than 3,300 people have taken advantage of the Operation Second Chance program over the past decade and avoided spending the holidays in jail by self-surrendering. 

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