El Paso County Commissioner Pct. 1

No D.U.I. El Paso

Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting with two Fort Bliss Soldiers

SPC Tyler Grouse and SPC Joshua Martin who both founded and minister

“NO D.U.I. El Paso”(NDEP)

NDEP was founded in 2012. It is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to drive clients

home safely, who feel they have had too much to drink.

The organization consists of teams of two volunteers. When called the two volunteers arrive at the establishment to assist the client. One volunteer drives the client home, in the client’s own vehicle. The other volunteer follows. Once they arrive safely at the client’s drop off location, he picks up the other volunteer.

I believe this program is a great alternative to using a cab or towing service.

NDEP can be reached at their toll free number:

877-366-7604

I would like to wish all my fellow neighbors and residents of El Paso County a very safe and Happy Holiday!
