City Marshal Division
The Marshal Division of the Municipal Court is tasked with locating absconders and bringing them before the Court. To this end, the Marshal Division assigns deputies to two shifts to look for and apprehend absconders. These deputies routinely make visits to the homes and work sites of wanted individuals. They also conduct periodic warrant round-ups.
Fort Worth Municipal Court warrants are also entered in the regional computer database. This database is available to deputy marshals and police officers in a multi-county region of the state. This means that a person wanted in Fort Worth can be arrested anywhere in the state and is likely to be arrested by one of the one hundred twenty-five member agencies.
