Media Release:  2017 Holiday Patrol and Impaired Driver Initiative

 

Starting the week of December 18, 2017, and throughout the New Year, Harris County

Constable Mark Herman’s office will initiate his 2017 Holiday Patrol and Impaired Driver Initiative. In addition, this year, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez will also participate by adding patrol units to the initiative!

 

During these times, the Precinct 4 Constables and the Harris County Sheriff’s office will add more patrol deputies on the streets within communities, as well as, retail shopping areas. Crime trends in past years indicate an increase in property crimes during this time period. Deputies will be handing out crime prevention materials to citizens in retail areas, as well as, distributing burglary to motor vehicle report cards on vehicles.

 

 Holiday Safety Tips:

 

·        If shopping, if possible, shop in groups, safety in numbers.

·        Walk with a purpose and be aware of your surroundings.

·        When walking to your vehicle, have your keys in your hand, and scan the interior of your vehicle before entering.

·        If you are alone, and feel uncomfortable about walking to your vehicle, request that store security escort you to your vehicle.

·        Try to avoid carrying a purse, and if you do keep it close to your body. Should someone grab your purse do not resist, your safety is worth more than the contents of the purse.

·        Do not leave valuables and packages in open view inside your vehicle. This is an invitation for thieves.

 

Constable Mark Herman “By putting more law enforcement boots on the ground, we will be able to take a proactive approach in fighting crime”. “Deputies will be seeking out the criminal element to protect our citizens”.

 

Also, during this same time frame, the Constables office will be adding additional patrol deputies to focus on an “Impaired Driver Enforcement Initiative. Deputies will be targeting persons operating motor vehicles while impaired. This part of the initiative has been funded by the Texas Department of Transportation through a grant funded to the Constables office. The Impaired Driver Initiative will run through New Year’s Day.

 

Constable Mark Herman” Do not get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle if you are impaired. Call a taxi or have a designated driver”.
