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

June 25, 2018

El Paso, TX – Operation Safe Streets will give people a chance to clear their outstanding misdemeanor and felony 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.

AWARDED SILVER WORKSITE BY TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF STATE HEALTH SERVICES

June 7, 2018

El Paso, TX – In June 2018, the Texas Department of State Health Services awarded the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office with the Silver Worksite Designation as a Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite.

Sheriff Wiles and the Sheriff’s Office recognize that breastfeeding is a proactive natural and essential form of feeding for infants. Implementing a site within both detention facilities provides our employees with a private and safe environment to facilitate each employee’s infant feeding goals and needs.

Chief Sylvia Aguilar along with the Detention Bureau Staff spearheaded the initiative for the Sheriff’s Office. The initiative is also carried out countywide at the numerous County operated locations.

“We wanted to provide a place, a friendly environment for our officers to relax and be able to take a break from their workday to continue to care for their babies.~ Chief Sylvia Aguilar

“In 1995, the Texas legislature recognized "a mother's responsibility to both her job and her child when she returns to work and acknowledges that a woman's choice to breastfeed benefits the family, the employer, and society."

The Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite Program seeks to reduce barriers to breastfeeding by increasing the proportion of employers who have worksite lactation support policies and programs. The program recognizes employers who develop and maintain policies to proactively support employees in combining working and breastfeeding by providing for:”

  1. Work schedule flexibility to allow adequate time for the expression of breastmilk.
  2. Access to a clean, safe water source and a sink to wash hands and clean pumping equipment.
  3. Access to clean running water to wash hands and clean pumping equipment.
  4. Access to hygienic options for storage of expressed breastmilk. (http://texasmotherfriendly.org/about-the-program)

To achieve the Silver and Gold, designations the employer must implement additional best practice policies and program activities to promote and support breastfeeding by their employees that exceed the minimum standards. http://texreg.sos.state.tx.us/public/readtac$ext.TacPage?sl=R&app=9&p_dir=&p_rloc=&p_tloc=&p_ploc=&pg=1&p_tac=&ti=25&pt=1&ch=31&rl=1

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT- PHONE SCAMS

June 5, 2018

El Paso, TX – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office wants to make the citizens of El Paso County aware of telephone scams that have claimed several victims.

People around El Paso County have received phone calls from an individual identifying themselves as an employee of the U.S. Marshals Service.

The scammer/offender then claims that the individual/victim has ignored their federal jury duty and they must either make a payment or report to Sheriff’s Office Headquarters to resolve the matter.

In cases where a payment is requested, the VICTIM is told to buy DOT Money Packs cards or gift cards for varying amounts to resolve the matter. After the VICTIM purchases the money cards, the scammer requests the serial numbers displayed on the money cards so that the warrant can be taken care of. Those numbers are then turned into cash by the scammer depriving the victim of the money.

The Sheriff’s office would also like to remind citizens that they will never be contacted by phone requesting payment for outstanding warrants.

If anyone has been a victim of these scams, please contact the proper authorities. El Paso Police Department non-emergency number is 915-832-4400 and El Paso County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number is 915-832-4408.
