Before you initiate any TX warrants search, it is important to first have a pretty good idea of exactly what an arrest warrant is. Arrest warrants are issued by the state of Texas, although they must always originate within the county where the crime was committed. In order for an arrest warrant to be issued, law enforcement officials must demonstrate to the court compelling evidence that a specific individual committed a crime. Assuming that the judge or magistrate of Nacogdoches County agrees, the warrant will be signed, whereupon it will become an active warrant. All arrest warrants must include the name of the person accused as well as the crimes name. Once it has been signed, arrest warrants compel law enforcement officials to arrest the suspect within 48 hours.
As with most of the counties in Texas, it is best to start any arrest warrant search at the local sheriffs office. For Nacogdoches County, this means contacting the Nacogdoches County Sheriffs Office, either by heading to 2306 Douglass Rd., Nacogdoches, 75964, or by calling 936-560-7794. Because many of the sheriff offices throughout the state of Texas require you to appear in person to start a TX warrant search request, it is often best to simply appear in person. For accessing the arrest records of the current prisoner population of Texas, you can use this tool provided by the Texas DCJ: http://www.tdcj.state.tx.us/mediasvc/offender_information/index.html. Or you can use the above search form to instantly search through an online criminal records database.
Whenever a warrant is issued in Texas, it is all but a guarantee that eventually the suspect will be apprehended. Because the courts often show a degree of leniency to those suspects whom turn themselves in, this is often the best option for persons named on arrest warrants.
