Throughout the state of Texas, arrest warrants and active warrants function identically. This means that if you perform a warrants search for any county in Texas, you can rely on that the warrant will be the same regardless of where you are. However, it is first important to understand exactly what an arrest warrant is. In Texas, warrants are issued at the state level, meaning that they hold jurisdiction over the entire state and not just individual counties. Once officers of the peace present enough compelling evidence to the courts, a judge or magistrate will authorize and sign the warrant, giving law enforcement personnel 48 hours to apprehend the suspect. All arrest warrants must include the perpetrator’s name, the crime they supposedly committed, and the signature of the magistrate or judge.
