Police travel warning on arrest warrants

Residents who could be the subject of outstanding warrants were advised yesterday to see police before they try to go overseas.

Police said the service knew of people who had been arrested at the airport because of unresolved court cases, which had caused disruption or even cancellation of trips.

A police spokesman added that anyone worried about an outstanding warrant should visit Hamilton Police Station at least 48 hours before their date of departure. He said people should go between 8am and 9am, Monday to Friday “to ensure any court matters are properly finalised in a timely fashion”.

The spokesman explained: “Warrants are instructions issued by the court to the police to apprehend persons for various reasons, including those who have failed to respond to outstanding ticket summons, reconcile outstanding fines or just failed to attend court.

“The BPS advises people to proactively resolve these matters ahead of any travel plans.”
