The Warrant Division contains within it the Warrant, Civil, Transportation, Bailiff, and Work Program Deputies. The Warrant Division maintains this with 9 sworn deputies and two clerks. The Work Program, with use of incarcerated inmates, was added to this division in 2000.

Among serving warrants and civil papers, the division assists the Jail Division in transporting inmates to court, consisting of a County Court @ Law and 2 District Courts, and to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice-Id, and any other activities that come about. With the capture of individuals outside this county, they are transported and returned to this county from within this state and  the United States.

To maintain the work load within the division, the deputies are familiar with each other's duties so that they may assist where needed.
