Dallas County Warrants

Dallas County warrants give law enforcement the power to arrest alleged offenders and take them into custody.  Warrants can be issued for a variety of reasons, including misdemeanor violations, felonies and traffic citations.

A warrant is issued against the offender by submitting a sworn affidavit, which details all of the crimes ostensibly committed, and then signed by a judge. It’s important to understand that Dallas County arrest warrants don’t have a statute of limitations. In other words, they never expire, and these records are accessible to law enforcement agencies throughout the state. If you have an outstanding warrant in your name, and you are stopped by police for a minor traffic offense or other valid reason, officers have no choice but to arrest you.

Dallas County arrest warrants

If you are searching for arrest warrant records in Dallas County, Texas, your first point of contact is the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department, located on North Riverfront Boulevard. The office is open to the public Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM and has a web-based search system for looking up active warrants. You can also call the Sherriff’s office or search the records of the police department’s arrest warrant portal.

Dallas warrants can be issued for public intoxication, possession of illegal drug paraphernalia, writing bad checks and traffic tickets, to name a few Class C misdemeanors. In the majority of cases, a Deputy Sheriff, DART officer or County Constable are the ones who issue warrants for Class C misdemeanors, not Dallas City police officers.  

Searching for an outstanding warrant

Bear in mind that all warrants are entered into a database that enables police officers from other jurisdictions to perform a Dallas County warrant lookup. Therefore, you may be subject to arrest at a routine traffic stop, even in another town or county.

While online warrant searches in Dallas County are confidential and anonymous, they do not always yield accurate results. Sometimes, the records haven’t been entered into the system, or they contain outdated or incorrect data. In other cases, alleged offenders may have a pocket warrant out for their arrest. Pocket warrants can be issued in Texas on the basis of an alleged offense against the laws of the State. Because these warrants do not require a formal criminal charge, suspects are usually completely unaware that they are wanted for a crime at the time of their arrest.

With a few phone calls, Peveto Law can determine if you have an outstanding warrant for your arrest in Dallas County. Our legal team will then examine the circumstances of your charges before working to post a surety bond that lifts the warrant and places the case back on the court docket.
