Princeton Police Department joined other law enforcement agencies thoughout the state in April to reel in past due fines through the Great State of Texas Warrant Roundup.
For its efforts PPD brought in $19,092 by executing arrest warrants on past due accounts.
The Princeton collections were the second highest among communities reporting in Collin County—highest amount was $27,738 for Little Elm, with a population of 35,000, more than three times the population of Princeton.
Heading up the PPD effort was Officer Chance Alexander who has been the department warrant officer for about a year.
“Within the short time frame that Officer Alexander has been in the warrant division, he has more than doubled what the previous warrant officer collected,” PPD Chief James Waters said. “He has established good rapport with surrounding agencies and helped other agencies serve warrants within our city.”
As of April 1, Alexander has collected over $132,000 in outstanding warrant revenue, the police chief reported.
