The Warrants Unit focuses on the management and execution of arrest warrants. Felony and misdemeanor warrants are received from the District, County and Justice of the Peace Courts. Warrants are securely maintained in the warrant office. When the fugitive is apprehended or the warrant is cleared by other methods and the warrant is returned to the court clerk of its origin.
The unit is tasked with ensuring that warrants are properly entered and filed in the in-house data system along with the Texas Crime Information Center (TCIC) or the National Crime Information Center (NCIC).
The Warrants Unit operates on a 24/7 basis and civilian employees handle the timely entry and clearing of these fugitive warrants. Investigators are assigned to the Warrants Unit who work in cooperation with other county-wide policing departments to effect fugitive arrests within the county. In addition, the Warrant Investigators are charged with the responsibility of transporting and extraditing apprehended fugitives from across the State of Texas or from anywhere within the United States. Fugitives that are incarcerated in other state or county jail facilities are transported back to Montgomery County to face pending criminal charges, demonstrating the long arm of the law and expressing our belief "if you do the crime, you will do the time."
The Warrant Investigators average over 150,000 miles per year in pursuit of fugitives that are incarcerated in other County or State facilities. The Warrants Unit cannot do it alone; log onto the Crime Stoppers website or call 1-800-392-STOP (7867) to provide any information you may have in helping us in identifying the location of the Most Wanted Fugitive(s). All tips received will remain anonymous. Your assistance can lead to the apprehension of a known fugitive and help get the criminal element off the street.
