The best way to perform a Wise County TX warrants search is to contact Wise County’s sheriff. Unlike many other counties throughout Texas, Wise County has an actual web page dedicated to arresting warrants in Wise County. This page can be found at http://sheriff.co.wise.tx.us/index.php/welcome/special-services/criminal-warrants/. If you cannot find the information you’re searching for on that page, we advise visiting the Sheriff’s Office at 200 Rook Ramsey Drive, in Decatur, TX 76234.
Please be advised that appearing at the sheriff’s office in person if you have an active Wise County TX arrest warrant will likely results in your arrest. For this reason, we strongly advise contacting a civilian defense attorney before proceeding.

According to the Texas Code of Criminal Conduct, which is posted on the internet here: https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/CR/htm/CR.15.htm, all arrest warrants are issued through Texas authority. This authorizes police officials to apprehend wanted suspects and permits them to make arrests regardless of which county the suspect is residing in. This means that fleeing over county lines will not prevent an individual from being arrested. All TX arrest warrants must include the name of the person thought to have committed a crime, a list of those crimes, and the judge’s signature authorizing the warrant. All warrants must be executed within 48 hours of being signed.
