sfpd_squad.jpgSan Francisco police this month will step up operations to search for residents who have warrants against them for driving under the influence, police said.

Police will be looking for drivers who have been issued a DUI warrant, which happens when an offender doesn’t follow court orders. If people are cited for DUI, they may be issued a warrant if they don’t go to traffic school, pay a fine, or serve jail or community service time, police said.

Police Officer Bill Garcia, who is running the warrant enforcement, said he can help drivers through the process of getting their warrant cleared.

“The alternative to taking care of your warrant on your own schedule is being arrested and seeing your car towed away,” he said in a statement.

Anyone who thinks they have a warrant and wants help should call (415) 553-7944.
