    Constables Jurisdiction

    Constables may make a warrantless arrest for any offense committed in their presence or view, anywhere in Texas --  except for offenses under Texas Transportation Code, Title 7, Subtitle C, which covers most moving traffic violations. However, they may enforce all state and local laws while in their county, including traffic offenses. Constables may serve arrest warrants anywhere in Texas.
