This is just a reminder that the Bakersfield Police Department offers a warrant citation program for individuals wishing to clear their misdemeanor warrants. In lieu of bail or a physical arrest, a citation with a new court appointment date is available. This program only applies to Bakersfield Police Department misdemeanor warrants and does not include warrants without bail. In order to receive a citation or to determine whether or not a warrant exists, individuals need simply respond to the Bakersfield Police Department Warrant Office, in person, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.. Information related to warrants will not be provided over the telephone.
An individual having an active warrant will need to bring some form of identification to the Police Department with them, however, if that is not possible; the warrant staff can most often confirm a person’s identity through information from the DMV or from a prior local booking.
The Bakersfield Police Department Warrant Office is located on the second floor of the Main Police Building at 1601 Truxtun Avenue, Bakersfield, California.
