What to expect after a warrant is issued
Once a warrant is received by the Constable’s Office it is immediately date/time stamped and assigned to a Warrant Deputy. The assigned Deputy will attempt to contact the wanted subject. Attempts consist of checking the Galveston County jail system to determine if the wanted person is already in custody, mailing a Warrant Notice advising the violator of their potential for arrest, contacting the individual’s phone at home and/or place of business. Measures are taken to place a hold on the subject’s ability to renew their Texas Driver’s License, and finally arresting and booking the person into the Galveston County jail. The success of these attempts is highly dependent on the accuracy of the information stated in the warrant affidavit and the associated investigative resources provided by Galveston County.
