    Warrants Personnel

    200 Taylor Street - 6th Floor
    Fort Worth, TX 76196

    A warrant is an official document signed by a judge or other person in authority which gives the police permission to search someone’s home, arrest a person or take some other action as authorized by the warrant.

    The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office Warrant Division, consists of 67 employees assigned to manage and serve active criminal and mental health warrants.  The division is divided into five units.

    • Fugitive Unit consists of 22 Deputies that pursue and arrest individuals who have warrants for their arrest.  These are uniformed Deputies that drive marked Sheriff’s patrol vehicles.  The Deputies work shifts from Monday -Friday, 7 a.m. - 10 p.m. and varied hours on the weekends.
    • Mental Health Deputies work closely with the Civil Courts that issue mental health warrants for individuals who are unable to care for themselves and have demonstrated to be a danger to themselves or others.  
    • Extradition Deputies travel all over the United States picking up prisoners who have been arrested by other law enforcement agencies on Tarrant County warrants.  These Deputies work a very flexible schedule due to travel.  The Sheriff’s Office also has a contract with a private company, which also transports prisoners.  The private company is used when they can provide the service cheaper.
    • Transportation Deputies pick up prisoners from the local municipalities when their criminal cases have been filed with the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office.  These Deputies also continually move prisoners from the several correctional facilities within Tarrant County.
    • Clerical Staff supports the operational units and the Criminal Courts by servicing the large number of outstanding warrants issued by the different courts throughout Tarrant County.
