The Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) and the Long Beach City Prosecutor’s Office have teamed up for another Warrant and Expungement Servicing Event, in an effort to continue to help our community with non-violent offenses.
The LBPD’s Warrant Detail currently has a multitude of misdemeanor and traffic warrants in the system that need to be addressed. Any person with outstanding traffic or non-violent misdemeanor warrant, issued by LBPD (only), is encouraged to participate in this event. All individuals who qualify will be issued a new citation and court date for their outstanding warrant in order to handle the warrant violation in court.
During the first two warrant clearing events last year, over 130 individuals were assisted with LBPD warrants. It is apparent from the turnout of these events that our community is willing to partner with LBPD to get a fresh start by taking care of their outstanding warrants.
If it’s not a warrant holding you back from future opportunities, maybe it’s an old misdemeanor conviction. Any person with a misdemeanor conviction is also encouraged to participate in this event. This event will be an opportunity to sit down with licensed attorneys and paralegals to help you expunge your criminal conviction from your record.
“We couldn’t be happier to give our community an opportunity in achieving their goals and accomplishments by making it possible to expunge old misdemeanor convictions and help clear warrants,” said LBPD Vice Investigations Lieutenant, Dina Zapalski.
The event will be held as follows:
Saturday, April 27, 2019
1:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Long Beach City College – Pacific Coast Campus
1305 E. Pacific Coast Highway (Parking Lot #1)
Please note, the following warrants are NOT eligible for a citation release:
- Any Felony Crime
- A misdemeanor warrant involving violence (Domestic Violence, Crime involving a Firearm or Resisting Arrest)
- The misdemeanor warrant involved a violation of a restraining, protective, or stay away order
