Wichita police launch program to help citizens clear traffic citation warrants
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - The Wichita Police Department (WPD) is launching “Second Chance Thursday,” a program providing an opportunity for citizens to quickly clear traffic warrants on their records without going through the Sedgwick County jail.
This is only for city-issued traffic citation warrants that don’t involve driving under the influence.
Second Chance Thursday will take place this Thursday, Sept. 17, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Citizens can check to see if they have active traffic warrants by clicking on the following link: https://online.wichita.gov/CourtDataServices/CourtWarrantSearch.aspx
The process to clear any traffic warrants on that day is as follows:
- Meet WPD officers at the Patrol West Community Policing Office, 5803 W. Central;
- Officers will verify and clear the traffic warrant; and
- Citizens will sign an appearance form and be provided a court date regarding the alleged charges.
If citizens are not able to make it on Thursday, they can email Officer Lori Kimrey at email@example.com to make arrangements to meet with officers at a later time and date.
