In an effort to assist citizens of El Paso County from being victimized by identity theft, Sheriff Richard Wiles has authorized the use of the Sheriff’s Office incinerator by members of the public to destroy personal documents no longer needed. The Sheriff’s Office understands citizens save documents that can accumulate and might not have the ability to safely dispose of them. Access to the incinerator will enable citizens of our community to feel secure knowing that information in their documents will not get into the wrong hands.

The incinerator, which is normally used to burn narcotics, will be available to the public twice a year. This year, those dates are Saturday September 27th and Saturday October 4th from 10:00am to 2:00pm. A Sheriff’s Office employee will be present to ensure all documents are completely destroyed. Only personal documents will be accepted with a household limit of the amount of paper that would fit into one 30 gallon trash bag. The Sheriff’s Office incinerator is compliant with rules and regulations set by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

If there are any questions, please contact Public Affairs Director Chris Acosta at 915-538-2223 or Public Information Officer Deputy M. Valle at 915-538-2119.

    The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office participated in a program that help troubled youth this summer. School Resource Officers assigned to Clint ISD were part of the Teen And Police Service (T.A.P.S.) Academy. The academy ran for 9 weeks and was specifically designed for at-risk youth. Students partnered with mentor officers to discuss issues such as: bullying, anger management, avoidance of gang life, drug usage, conflict management and many other youth and law enforcement focused topics. Through these interactive sessions, students gained skills to make better and more positive decisions in their lives. 

One of the primary goals of this program was to strengthen communities by encouraging at-risk youth and law enforcement to work together. TAPS creates an environment where law enforcement and youth learn from each other, build relationships, and discuss better ways to manage adverse situations.

There will be a  T.A.P.S. graduation ceremony on August 13, 2014 at the Clint ISD Administration Building located at 14521 Horizon Blvd. The ceremony will begin at 6:00pm. Sheriff Wiles, Chief Aguilar, and Superintendant Juan Martinez will be the special guests.

At the graduation ceremony will be the founders of the Teen And Police Service (T.A.P.S.) academy

NEWS RELEASE-Special Event 08-04-14

The Sheriff’s Office reached out to the community and invited children to participate in Sheriff’s Safety town recently. It consisted of buildings, cross walks, and stop signs to help promote bicycle and traffic safety. This annual event was also used to provide important safety tips on subjects like: gun safety, fire safety, stranger danger, and general traffic safety. The town was set up at the Lowe’s parking lot (11950 Rojas) the first part of the week and then moved to the Sheriff’s Office headquarters parking lot. This year, about 20 children from all over El Paso participated in this event. The Horizon City volunteer Fire Department brought a fire truck and put on a presentation about fire safety. A representative from University Medical Center gave a presentation on bicycle safety and passed out bicycle helmets for the children. One of our K-9 Deputies also brought his dog and gave a presentation to the children on the uses of a police dog. At the end of the week, the Sheriff’s Safety town event ended with a graduation ceremony for the children that included.
