EL PASO COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE

TO INCREASE PATROLS FOR SPRING BREAK

February 27, 2018

El Paso, TX – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, in collaboration with the Texas Department of Transportation under the 2018 STEP Comprehensive Grant and the 2018 Impaired Driving Mobilization grant, will be putting out additional Deputies as part of enhanced Driving While Intoxicated patrols. Deputies will also be targeting speed violators, those committing intersection violations, individuals not wearing their seatbelts and drivers with child passengers who are not properly secured.

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.”

EL PASO COUNTY FLEET MANAGEMENT AND EL PASO COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE STREAMLINE VEHICLE INSPECTION FOR SHERIFF’S OFFICE FLEET

February 5, 2018

El Paso, TX – The El Paso County Fleet Management, Sheriff Richard D. Wiles, and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office announce the opening of the Sheriffs’ Office Motor Pool State of Texas Official Vehicle Safety and Emission Inspection Station.

The in-house station officially opened this week and the station will perform all annual safety and emission inspections on all 350 vehicles assigned to the Sheriffs’ Office as the vehicles come in for their routine services. Prior to this in-house station, all the Sheriffs’ Office vehicles annual inspections were outsourced to local shops across the City. 

The cost for each inspection is $7.00 for motorcycles and trailers, $18.50 for sedans, SUVs, vans and pickup trucks, and $40 for commercial vehicles.  This equates to yearly savings of $6,500 on inspection fees alone, $ 33,000 in fuel cost, and $52,500 in maintenance wear and tear repairs. In addition, an immeasurable amount of time loss moving these vehicles back and forth to outside vendors for the annual inspections.The cost to set up the station is approximately $15,000 and will pay for itself within the first few months of operation.

The in-house station at the Sheriff’s Office Motor Pool will be the second of two in-house County owned and operated Inspection Stations, the first station opened two years ago and is housed at the Fabens Warehouse Motor Pool.

This is yet another innovation within Fleet’s Management Action Plan to reduce waste, be more efficient, and move the County forward. Other government entities and publicly held companies are also moving to this in-house inspection concept to save funds and streamline operations.

*Please note the in-house stations are not open to the public for personal use.*
