EL PASO COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE, DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE & COUNTY COURT ADMINISTRATION LAUNCH OPERATION SAFE STREETS

June 25, 2018

El Paso, TX – Operation Safe Streets will give people a chance to clear their outstanding misdemeanor and felony warrants while taking advantage of being processed at the Satellite Booking Office in lieu of the County Jail.

This is also an opportunity to avoid your name appearing on a criminal warrant list and being arrested at your home or place of business.

After the conclusion of the operation, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office in cooperation with other Texas law enforcement agencies will be conducting a warrant roundup.

NOTE: All warrants will remain active until arrest or recall.

WHAT IS SATELLITE BOOKING?

Satellite Booking is located at the El Paso County Courthouse, 500 E. San Antonio LL-110. It gives you the opportunity to be processed without having to be booked into jail.

Before reporting to the Satellite Booking Office, you must have posted bond either by;

1. Making arrangements in advance to post bond by a bonding company of your choice OR

2. Paying a cash bond at the County Jail. You must bring your receipt with you.

Additionally, Satellite Booking can only be utilized when a defendant has an outstanding

warrant from the Court and he/she needs to be booked. This avoids a lengthy booking process at the jail and reduces the time spent when the defendant has a bondable outstanding warrant.

If you have any other warrants including Tickets, Out of County Warrants, Parole Violations, Wanted Person or Pink Warrants, you will need to surrender at the El Paso County Jail.
