One of the most important aspects of arrest warrants in Parmer County, and for all of Texas, is that they function almost identically in every part of the state. This is because all arrest warrants in TX fall under the Code of Criminal Procedure (which you can access at https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/CR/htm/CR.15.htm), and it dictates how every county in Texas deals with arrest warrants. For an arrest warrant to be created and for it to be considered valid, it must be overseen and ultimately approved by a magistrate or a judge. Before a judge approves a TX warrant, officers of the peace must demonstrate that they have probable cause for a particular individual to commit a specific crime. Once this burden of proof has been met, an arrest warrant will be issued for the county in which the crime was committed and will then be signed by the judge. It must also include the name of the perpetrator and an indication of the crime that they committed.
