These warrants can be rectified 24-hours a day at the Sheriff’s Office Records Division, located at the main Sheriff’s Office building at 55 W. Younger Ave. in San Jose. The program is directed toward all misdemeanor warrants, no matter what the bail is, including those warrants stamped “No Cite and Release,” “No Walk-Over,” and “Post and Forfeit.”

This program is scheduled to conclude at the end of the month and is only valid for those people coming into the Santa Clara County Sheriff Office.

The following warrants do not qualify for this program: felony warrants and any warrant involving violence.

Details: Sheriff’s Office Records Manager, Michelle Covarrubias at (408) 808-4709.
