Operation "Second Chance" 2017

Post Date:12/05/2017 3:45 PM

Starting on Friday, December 1, 2017, and continuing through the month of December the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with ALL other Santa Clara County law enforcement agencies, will be implementing a special program in which individuals with NON-VIOLENT MISDEMEANOR CRIMINAL and TRAFFIC WARRANTS can receive a citation with a new court date, in lieu of being booked into the County Jail.

“Operation Second Chance” 2017 will beg...in on December 1st and run through December 31st. Individuals can go to ANY Santa Clara County law enforcement agency to receive their warrant citation, which will require an acknowledged written “Promise to Appear” court date. Operation Second Chance 2017 is directed towards MOST misdemeanor warrants, no matter what the bail is, including those warrants stamped “No Cite and Release,” and “No Bail.”

The following warrants DO NOT qualify for this program:
* Felony warrants
* ANY warrant involving violence (including ALL domestic violence warrants)
* ANY warrant involving a firearm
* ANY warrant involving resisting arrest
* ANY warrant involving giving false information to a peace officer

Persons with these types of warrants however, are urged to take this opportunity to turn themselves in so they can take care of their matter in court.

More than 3,500 people have taken advantage of this program over the past decade and avoided spending the holidays in jail by self-surrendering.

If you have any questions relating to this program, please contact Sheriff’s Office Records at (408) 808-4717.
