Throughout the state of Texas, the same law governs arrest warrants, regardless of which county they originate from. You can read all of the details of this law at http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/CR/htm/CR.15.htm, although we will provide you with an overview to get you started. Because arrest warrants must originate from a county but are issued by the authority of the state, they can be executed regardless of where in the state of Texas a suspect flees. Arrest warrants must have the name of the person suspected, the crime that they are believed to have committed, and the signature of the authorizing judge or magistrate. Once the warrant has been authorized, officers of peace have 48 hours in which the suspect must be apprehended.
