In Tarrant County, warrants are handled by the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office Warrant Division. Warrants are legal documents that give law enforcement the authority to search property or make arrests.
In the state of Texas, all counties follow the same process for warrants, which is outlined in the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure. A judge or other authorized person must be provided with sufficient evidence of a crime or criminal intent before a warrant can be signed. A court can also issue a warrant when an individual does not appear for a court case or neglects to pay fines or complete community service orders.
