A police officer in certain situations has an option of issuing a Cite and Release citation for a person to appear before a magistrate at a later date, rather than arresting someone or taking them to jail for some misdemeanors
What do I do if I am given a Cite and Release citation?
On your appearance date, you need to go to the Williamson County Justice Center at 405 Martin Luther King in Georgetown, Texas. When you arrive, you will be in the custody of the Williamson County Sheriff. You will be booked and fingerprinted at the Williamson County Justice Center instead of jail. The Magistrate will inform you of your rights and let you know your charges and bond set. You will also be given your next court date and released.
