Why People Miss Their Court Date

Most failures to appear are due to forgetfulness or circumstances beyond a defendant's control, and not for criminal or evasive intentions.

  • Lack of information about the court date.
  • Unable to take time off work.
  • Court notice mailed to an outdated address.
  • Unable to find dependant care.
  • Due to unforeseeable events.

Consequences of Failure to Appear

Missing a court date has a cascading impact on our communities.

Failure to appear is the primary driver of bench warrants being issued.

Bench warrants cost communities and court systems time and money.

Enforcement of bench warrants adds additional costs and diverts resources.

  • Reminders help reduce FTA by up to50%
