Bailiff / Warrant Officer
Bailiff - Wylie Municipal Court
A Baliff and Warrant Officer are law enforcement officers who maintain order and law in the courtroom. When court is in session, these officers follow the direction of the judge. These directions can include collecting court documents, presenting court documents, reviewing reports, verification of insurance and verification of compliance violations.
When the officer isn't performing duties for the judge, he/she keeps an eye on the proceedings to make sure everything goes smoothly. This includes protecting judges, witnesses, jury members, lawyers and others present in the courtroom.
The Warrant Officer also takes care of prisoner transportation and prisoner arraignments and works closely with municipal court to serve court subpoenas.
The Warrant Officer performs duties to locate and apprehend offenders who have active warrants for their arrest. This also includes assisting in coordinating and facilitating the participation in the Statewide Warrant Roundup.
