One of the potentially surprising aspects of TX arrest warrants is that they can only be issued when a state law and not a local ordinance has been broken. One of the key implications of this is that all arrest warrants are issued with the express authorization of the state, meaning that they are executable anywhere in the state of Texas.

In order for an arrest warrant to be issued in Texas, several things must first happen. Officers of the peace must demonstrate to the judge or magistrate of Presidio County that not only was a specific state law broken, but that they have compelling evidence that implicates a specific individual. Assuming that the judge/magistrate agree with the law enforcement officials, they will issue an active warrant for Presidio County, which must also include the name of the accused suspect, the signature of the presiding judge, and the law that was broken.
