In Texas, every county follows the rules concerning arrest warrants laid out by the Code of Criminal Conduct. One of the key advantages to this is that no matter what county you are in, you can rely on warrants’ laws to be the same. One of the disadvantages of this, depending on your perspective, is that police forces can pursue and execute arrest warrants over county lines, making it much more difficult to flee arrest.
For Wilson County to issue an arrest warrant, police officers must first present evidence in a court of law that implicates a specific person. Provided that the judge believes enough evidence has been presented, they will authorize and sign an arrest warrant, which will allow police forces for 48 hours to pursue and apprehend the suspect named by the warrant. Whether for Wilson or any other county, every warrant issued must include the name of the suspect, his crimes, and the signature of the authorizing judge.
