Criminal Summons

The Warrants Bureau is responsible for the services of all adult criminal summons issued in Alachua County. A Summons is an order to appear in court, not an arrest warrant. If you have been given notice or believe you may have been issued a Criminal Summons, it must be picked up at the Warrants Bureau lobby, 2621 SE Hawthorne Road in Gainesville, Monday through Friday (except holidays) between 8:00am and 4:00pm. When a Criminal Summons is not picked up by the defendant, it is returned to the Clerk of Court where an arrest Capias (warrant) is then issued.
