SHERIFF’S OFFICE TO ENHANCE PATROLS

CINCO DE MAYO

 

April 30, 2019

 

El Paso, TX – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, with funding provided by the Texas Department of Transportation under the 2019 STEP Comprehensive Grant, will be putting out additional deputies as part of Cinco De Mayo Operation.

 

The enhanced patrol operations will be taking place each day May 3rd through May 5th, 2019 throughout El Paso County. The Sheriff’s Office will conduct intensive patrols within areas of the county where there is a high incidence of crime and traffic crashes.  Deputies will be looking for all types of traffic violations (such as speed, intersection-related, seatbelt, etc.) as well as intoxicated drivers.   

 

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.

NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION TAKE BACK DAY APRIL 2019

NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION TAKE BACK DAY

APRIL 2019

 

April 22, 2019

 

El Paso, TX – On Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public an opportunity to prevent prescription drug abuse by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted medications. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

The Sheriff’s Office is partnering with DEA on this initiative by opening the three Patrol Stations from 10 am to 2 pm for the public to drop off their unwanted medications. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles, only pills or patches.)

·         East Montana Patrol Station – 12501 Montana Ave.

·         Clint Patrol Station – 190 San Elizario Rd.

·         Northwest Patrol Station – 435 E. Vinton Rd, Suite D.

 

This past October, Americans turned in 457 tons of prescription drugs at more than 5,839 sites operated by the DEA and 4,770 state and local law enforcement partners. 

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.  Medicines unattended in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.  Year after year the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health show the majority of misused and abused prescription drugs are secretly obtained from family and friends. In addition, Americans are now advised their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash - pose potential safety and health hazards.
