If you owe past due fines and a contempt of court warrant has been issued for your arrest, you can avoid being arrested and have your warrant dismissed if you will voluntarily come to the Municipal Court Clerk's office and pay the fine in full.

The Vicksburg Police Department participated in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Campaign which ran from December 20, 2014 through January 1, 2015.

Armstrong believes that if one (1) person's life can be saved by removing an impaired driver from the roadway, then the enforcement efforts by the Vicksburg Police Department are certainly worth it.
