ColbathpicAPRIL 20 UPDATE: The deadline to register is extended to April 29.

Got a warrant hanging over your head? Come on down.

Operation Fresh Start, the annual 1-day event for people to clear outstanding nonviolent misdemeanor or criminal traffic warrants in Palm Beach County, is set for 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 30.

The event’s at the Palm Beach County Criminal Justice Complex, 3228 Gun Club Road, West Palm Beach, and at  the South County Courthouse, 200 W. Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach.

More than 25,000 people have outstanding warrants, most of them for failure to appear in court; Palm Beach County Clerk & Comptroller Sharon Bock said in a release; “resolving these warrants allows citizens to clear their record as well as improve efficiencies in our justice system.”

People charged with violent crimes and felonies are not eligible.

Appointments are required. Contact the Public Defender’s Office at 561-355-7655.  For more, visit www.mypalmbeachclerk.com/opfreshstart.

People can appear in court and establish a payment plan for fines and costs, and will avoid jail time.

And representatives will be on-site to help with reinstatement of driver licenses. Visit https://services.flhsmv.gov/DLCheck/ or call 850-617-2000 to check your status.
