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

If you wish to know if you or another individual has a criminal warrant for their arrest, you will need to contact a licensed bondsman or attorney to get that information. It is not the policy of the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office to release criminal warrant information to the general public. This information is only given to licensed bondsmen, attorneys or law enforcement agencies.

The Criminal Warrants Division manages and serves active criminal and mental warrants. The division is divided into five units:

  • Fugitive Warrants – Uniformed commissioned Sheriff’s Deputies pursue and arrest individuals who have warrants for their arrest. The deputies work various shifts and drive marked Sheriff’s Office vehicles.
  • Mental Warrants – Uniformed commissioned Sheriff’s Deputies work closely with the Civil Court system that issues mental health warrants for individuals who are unable to care for themselves and have demonstrated to be a danger to themselves or others.
  • Extradition – Commissioned 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 requirements. In addition, the Sheriff’s Office has a contract with a private company, which also transports prisoners for the Department when needed.
  • Transportation – Uniformed commissioned Sheriff’s Deputies pick up prisoners daily that have been arrested by local municipalities and transport them to the Tarrant County Jail to be incarcerated. These Deputies also assist with special details involving prisoner transport for other Sheriff’s Office Divisions when needed.
  • Clerical Staff – These important individuals support the operational units and the Criminal Court system by servicing the large numbers of outstanding warrants issued by the different courts throughout Tarrant County. They handle the administrative needs of the Warrant Division and work twenty-four hours a day handling warrant confirmations for law enforcement agencies as needed.
