EPCSO INDEPENDENCE DAY OPERATION

June 28, 2017

El Paso, TX – With the upcoming Independence Day celebration, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office will be increasing its patrols throughout the El Paso County to minimize traffic congestion, prevent collisions, protect private and public properties from damages and keep residents safe during the celebration.

Sheriff’s Office deputies will be proactively patrolling throughout the Independence Day holiday and will identify and hold all violators responsible in an effort minimize the risks to the public and motorists.

El Paso County is a “No Refusal” county, if a driver is arrested for Driving While Intoxicated and he/she refuses to submit a sample of their breath for analysis, a search warrant will be obtained and a sample of their blood will be taken. That sample will then be submitted for analysis to determine blood alcohol concentration. Either way, the driver will be booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility.

The Sheriff’s Office would also like to remind its citizens of the laws that apply to ATV use and safety. A person that is younger than 14 must be accompanied and be under direct supervision of a responsible adult. A person cannot operate an ATV on public property unless the person wears a safety helmet and eye protection. A person may not carry a passenger on an ATV unless it is designed to carry a passenger. An ATV operated on public property must have a lighted headlight and taillight after sunset. Here are some safety tips to help keep riders safe.

1. Always wear a DOT- compliant helmet, goggles, long sleeves, long pants, over the ankle boots, and gloves.

2. Never ride on paved roads except to cross when it is SAFE and PERMITTED by law. ATVs are designed to be operated off-highways.

3. Never ride under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.

4. Never carry a passenger on a single-rider AVT, and no more than one passenger on an ATV specifically designed for two people.

5. Operate/Ride an ATV that is right for your age/weight/height.

6. Supervise young riders; ATVs are not toys.

7. Ride only on designated trails and a safe speed.

EL PASO COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE, DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE & COUNTY COURT ADMINISTRATION LAUNCH OPERATION SAFE STREETS

June 28, 2017

El Paso, TX – Operation Safe Streets will give people a chance to clear their outstanding misdemeanor warrants while taking advantage of being processed at the Satellite Booking Office in lieu of the County Jail.

This is also an opportunity to avoid your name appearing on a criminal warrant list and being arrested at your home or place of business.

After the conclusion of the operation, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office in cooperation with other Texas law enforcement agencies will be conducting a warrant roundup.

NOTE: All warrants will remain active until arrest or recall.

WHAT IS SATELLITE BOOKING?

Satellite Booking is located at the El Paso County Courthouse, 500 E. San Antonio LL-110. It gives you the opportunity to be processed without having to be booked into jail.

Before reporting to the Satellite Booking Office, you must have posted bond either by;

1. Making arrangements in advance to post bond by a bonding company of your choice OR

2. Paying a cash bond at the County Jail. You must bring your receipt with you.

Additionally, Satellite Booking can only be utilized when a defendant has an outstanding

warrant from the Court and he/she needs to be booked. This avoids a lengthy booking process at the jail and reduces the time spent when the defendant has a bondable outstanding warrant.

If you have any other warrants including Tickets, Out of County Warrants, Parole Violations, Wanted Person or Pink Warrants, you will need to surrender at the El Paso County Jail.
