In Texas, individual counties such as Yoakum County issue all arrest warrants. However, all arrest warrants throughout the state are issued through the authority of the actual state, and not the county itself. What this means is that an arrest warrant for Yoakum County TX is equally as valid in every other county as it is in the county that issued it. This also means that fleeing over county lines will not prevent authorities from making an arrest.
For a Yoakum County arrest warrant to be created, a series of protocol must be followed. The first step is that local law enforcement officials must gather evidence that shows a particular individual was responsible for a crime. Law enforcement officials must then present this evidence to a judge, and if the judge accepts that the evidence is sufficient, he will issue an arrest warrant. Once this is done, police forces have 48 hours in which to arrest the suspect indicated on the warrant.
