No matter what county of Texas you are in, arrest warrants function in the same way. TX warrant laws, like all state laws, are determined at the state level, and although individual counties can make minor modifications to those laws, they are essentially identical throughout the state. In Texas, the procedures by which arrest warrants are processed is dictated by the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, which you can find at http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/CR/htm/CR.15.htm.
Basically, Sherman County TX warrants function as an authorization from the courts of Texas that allow police officers to arrest the suspect named by the warrant. In addition to the suspects name, the crime they are alleged to have committed must also appear on the warrant, as well as the signature of the judge that authorized the warrant. Once this process has been completed, police have 48 hours in which to find and arrest the suspect.
As there is no statewide database of active TX warrants that is accessible online, alternative means must be used to make arrest warrant inquiries. For Sherman County TX, this means you should contact the sheriff of Sherman County. You may do so either at PO Box 526, in Stratford TX 79084, or at 806-366-5551. Often, police will require Sherman County warrant searches be conducted in person, and if there is an active warrant for you it is likely that you will be arrested. We therefore strongly advise you to speak to a defense attorney upon even suspicion of having an active TX arrest warrant. You can use the above search form to instantly search through an online criminal records database if you are looking for those instead.
Please be aware that all arrest warrants function across the state, and can be executed over county lines.
