The office is subject to Article 103.0033 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure and is regularly audited by the Office of Court Administration’s Collections Improvement Program.

Required of all defendants ordered to pay court costs and/or fees:

Defendants must report to the Felony Collections Office within 5 days of sentencing and/or release from jail to make payment arrangements. The Felony Collections window is located on the second floor of the Frank Crowley Courts Building next to the District Clerk’s cashier window and the Central Jury Room:
