New Warrant Division Starts Monday

(SCOTTSBORO, AL) WAFF - A valley police department might be knocking at your door if there's a warrant out for your arrest.   The Scottsboro Police Department now has a warrant division.   

The Scottsboro Police Department has struggled with finding those who owe the city money. The current warrants add up to over $705,000. The cold case warrants, which are those issued before 1998, are another $250,000, but Scottsboro's problems are about to change.

At Tuesday nights city council meeting, the Scottsboro Police Department received funding for a new warrant division.   Captain Capps says he hopes the new warrant division will put money back into the city of Scottsboro.

The division will have two officers who will make house calls serving warrants on a daily basis! a new plan that will get scottsboro's warrants under control. Scottsboro Police Department's new warrant division will come into effect on January 19.
