NEW NPD WARRANT OFFICER HIRED



(Nacogdoches, Tx.) The Nacogdoches Police Department has appointed a new Warrant Officer/Bailiff to work with the Nacogdoches Municipal Court.



Darrell Trawick, pictured above on right, who retired as a Lieutenant with the NPD at the end of December, began his new duties January 7. Since that time, he has been busy serving arrest warrants on those with outstanding cases in Municipal Court. Trawick also serves as the bailiff during Court proceedings.



According to Nacogdoches Municipal Court Judge Juanita Springer, the position will insure that a bailiff is present during all courtroom proceedings. “We are eager and pleased to have Officer Trawick working in the Court. His presence will ensure that all participants, including defendants and court staff, will be safer because of his awareness and knowledge of the dangers associated with a court environment”, the Judge said.



Officer Trawick’s duties will also include active pursuing defendants with outstanding warrants and making arrests. “Officer Trawick will be actively participating in the statewide warrant round up this year, and we anticipate he will be a great asset in gaining compliance from those who have outstanding warrants”, said Nacogdoches Police Chief Jim Sevey. “It is important that residents get warrants cleared, because if they do not, they run the risk of being arrested on a traffic stop or even when they go to renew their drivers licenses”, he added.



Trawick began his career with the Nacogdoches Police Department in 1982 as a Patrol Officer.



The Municipal Court may be contacted at 936-559-2641. Lobby hours are 8:00 am- 4:00 PM weekdays. The court is located at 217 West Hospital Street.
