Warrants can include bench warrants, issued by Zachary City Court Judge Lonny Myles, or an affidavit warrant, written and issued by police officers and detectives.
Police Chief David McDavid said he and the department intend to take a more aggressive approach in locating individuals with outstanding warrants. "One way is to continue publishing the warrants in the paper (Zachary Plainsman) and online (zacharytoday.com), but also to begin a feature titled Zachary's Most Wanted," McDavid said. "We're going to start releasing photographs of these individuals we cannot locate."
McDavid said the ZPD considers all offenses and violations serious ones and they will continue to do all possible to clear the warrants from the legal system.
