People in Larimer County with certain outstanding warrants will be able to clear some types of warrants without being arrested at an upcoming Warrant Clearance opportunity and coinciding Community Resource Fair this month.

The warrant clearance is sponsored by the District Attorney’s Office in the 8th Judicial District, the Office of the State Public Defender, the 8th Judicial Bench, and the Fort Collins Municipal Court, while the Community Resource Fair will be hosted by Larimer County Community Justice Alternatives [CJA]. Both events take place from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17 at the Old Town Public Library 201 Peterson St. in downtown Fort Collins.

Offenses that are eligible for warrant clearance are misdemeanor, traffic, and petty drug charges; DF-4 drug charges; City of Fort Collins Municipal Court charges; some class 5 and class 6 felonies; and failure to register charges.

The Community Resource Fair, hosted by CJA includes a variety of participating organizations in health, mental health, shelter, veteran health, and human and social resources for members of our community. Free vaccinations will be provided by Larimer County Health and Environment.

Resource providers at the fair will include SummitStone Health Partners; Murphy Center/Homeward Alliance; Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center; MAAC [UCHealth]; Health District of Northern Larimer County; Larimer County Department of Human Services; DMV2GO Colorado Department of Revenue, Division of Motor Vehicles; Fort Collins Rescue Mission.
