As a courtesy, the Municipal Court may mail a notification letter to people for whom Judges have issued Bench Warrants. Bench Warrants are Court orders to law enforcement to arrest someone and place them in custody until Court reconvenes. Municipal Court Warrants are issued when someone fails to appear in Court at a scheduled Court date as promised in writing, for failure to pay a fine by a designated date as promised, or for failure to comply with other orders of the Court. The Judge issuing the Warrant will set a dollar amount of bail. Anyone who has an active warrant must post a bond in the amount of the bail to secure release from custody. In addition to the bail amount set by the Judge, a $60.00 warrant service fee is imposed by the Court on each Warrant issued.
If you have an active Warrant which was issued by the Woodland Park Municipal Court, you have the following options:
- Appear in person at the Municipal Court located at 220 W. South Avenue with CASH* in the full amount of your bond. If you are unsure of the amount you need to appear with, contact the Court Clerk by telephone at (719) 687-5207 or email at Court Clerk;
- Turn yourself in to the Woodland Park Police Department, Colorado Springs Police Department, Teller County Sheriff’s Department, or El Paso County Sheriff’s Department where you can post bond and receive a new Court date. If you are not able to bond, the Court will arrange to transport you for an appearance.
*Cash posted will be held by the Court and applied against any future fines/costs imposed by the Court or returned in full if all subsequent Court appearances and obligations are met.
