The Warrant Division is responsible
for clearing all warrants directed to our precinct. Most
of these warrants are filed as a result of a bad check
or an unpaid traffic citation issued by the Highway Patrol,
Collin County Sheriff's Office or a Deputy from Precinct
3. The Constable affords each defendant with a courtesy
notice in the mail informing individuals that a warrant
has been issued for their arrest. If a defendant fails
to respond, the warrant division then begins actively pursuing
the defendant. Through a variety of different techniques
these defendants are located and arrested.
The Constable is concerned
that the merchants in Precinct 3 have a way of recovering
their loss due to bad checks. The Constable knows that putting
the defendants in jail does not help when you, the merchant
or individual have suffered a financial loss. Defendants
are placed in jail when all other means have been exhausted.
Duties of our clerical staff include
assisting the general public, computer input of all warrants
received from the courts, mailing notification of warrants
to defendants and compiling statistical warrant information.
