SHERIFF’S OFFICE TO INCREASE PATROLS DURING LABOR DAY WEEKEND

“Plan While You Can” increased enforcement effort runs through Sept. 2, 2019

August 29, 2019

El Paso, TX – As part of the Texas Department of Transportation’s “Plan While You Can” Labor Day campaign, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and law enforcement officers across Texas will increase DWI patrols to identify and stop impaired drivers.

The campaign aims to decrease crashes and save lives by urging drivers to plan a sober ride as part of their holiday weekend festivities. The increased enforcement runs through Labor Day, Sept. 2, 2019.

“Labor Day marks the end of summer, which can mean one last celebration or vacation before the end of the season, and spending time with family and friends,” said Richard D. Wiles, Sheriff. “If drinking alcohol is a part of your Labor Day weekend plans, be sure to also plan ahead for a sober ride before you drink. Don’t ruin the holiday weekend for yourself or someone else.”

During last year’s Labor Day holiday weekend* in Texas, there were 328 crashes involving drivers who were driving under the influence of alcohol. Those crashes killed eight people and seriously injured another 25.

While drivers under the influence of alcohol risk killing or seriously injuring themselves and others, they could also face up to $17,000 in fines and fees, jail time and loss of their driver’s license. The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and TxDOT strongly encourage everyone to plan for a sober ride before going out. Visit SoberRides.org to find alternatives to drinking and driving, such as:

· Designating a sober driver or calling someone for a sober ride home.

· Contacting a cab or ride-share service.

· Using mass transit.

· Spending the night.

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

August 2, 2019

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.
