Police will visit thousands of homes, businesses or schools looking for everyone from felons to those with unpaid speeding tickets.

“With the assistance of law enforcement, we fully intend to use the entire scope of our resources, and we want to make everyone aware that ignoring your court matter is not an acceptable practice,” Presiding Judge Barbara E. Hartle.

More than 300,000 people have outstanding warrants in the city of Houston alone.
