Before beginning a formal Taylor County TX warrants search, it is important to have an understanding of what Texas arrest warrants are, how they function, and how they come to be created. Although arrest warrants are created both on behalf of the state of Texas and through the authority of the entire state of Texas, Taylor County arrest warrants must be created in a court within Taylor County. This has the significant implication of meaning that an arrest warrant issued in Taylor County is valid and executable anywhere in the state of Texas.
In order for a warrant to be issued, police forces must first present evidence to a court in Taylor County. Provided that the evidence is considered sufficient by a judge, the warrant will be issued and signed, at which point police forces must apprehend the suspect within 48 hours. All warrants must also include the name of the suspect and the crime committed.
