Before initiating a Rockwall County warrants search, we strongly advise taking a few moments to familiarize yourself with how arrest warrants in TX function. Because all arrest warrants in Texas are governed by the same law and are actually issued by Texas itself, understanding the warrant laws of one county means that you can understand them throughout the state.
Simply put, all arrest warrants must include the name of the suspect, the name of the crime they are involved with, and the authorizing signature of a judge. An arrest warrant serves as an extension of Texan authority to its law enforcement officials. It grants them the ability to apprehend the suspect named by the warrant for up to 48 hours after it was signed. Once apprehended, the suspect will enter the criminal justice system and may face a criminal trial and conviction.
