El Paso, TX - The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, with funding provided by the Texas Department of Transportation under the 2016 Impaired Driver Mobilization Grant and the 2016 STEP Comprehensive Grant, will be putting out additional Deputies as part of enhanced Driving While Intoxicated patrols. Deputies will also be targeting speeding violators and those not wearing their seatbelts.

The enhanced patrol operations will be taking place during the month of March in response to increased activity during “Spring Break”.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public that 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.

“El Paso County Sheriff Richard Wiles wants to reiterate this reality by reminding College and High School students that Law Enforcement will be out looking for Drunk Drivers. Be smart and use a designated driver, NEVER get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol.”
