Before you start a Wichita County warrants search, we strongly advise taking the time to read up and come to an understanding of how arrest warrants function in Texas. Because all arrest warrants fall under laws created at the state level, every county has the exact same arrest warrant laws. In order for an arrest warrant to be created in Wichita County, police forces must appear first in a court and explain to a judge why a particular individual was responsible for crimes that have been committed. If the judge finds their arguments and evidence compelling, he will issue an arrest warrant for the individual.
An important detail about Wichita County arrest warrants is that although issued by a specific county, they are valid in every other county in Texas. This means that you can be arrested anywhere in Texas, and that fleeing over county lines will not help you.
Now that you have an understanding of arrest warrants, it is time to start your arrest warrants search for Wichita County TX. We advise starting by contacting the Wichita County Sheriffs Office, either by visiting 900 7th Street #100, in Wichita Falls TX 76301, or by telephone at 940-766-8170. We advise attempting a phone search first. If you would like to look at Wichita County arrest records, we advise using the TDCJs Offender Information Search Tool at 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.
Before proceeding, however, we strongly recommend contacting a defense attorney.
Each year, the TDCJ files an annual report, in which they detail the number of people incarcerated in each county, based on which county issued those warrants. In 2010, 710 people were imprisoned over arrest warrants filed within the county. You can view this report at http://www.tdcj.state.tx.us/documents/Statistical_Report_2010.pdf.
