PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT- PHONE SCAMS

June 5, 2018

El Paso, TX – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office wants to make the citizens of El Paso County aware of telephone scams that have claimed several victims.

People around El Paso County have received phone calls from an individual identifying themselves as an employee of the U.S. Marshals Service.

The scammer/offender then claims that the individual/victim has ignored their federal jury duty and they must either make a payment or report to Sheriff’s Office Headquarters to resolve the matter.

In cases where a payment is requested, the VICTIM is told to buy DOT Money Packs cards or gift cards for varying amounts to resolve the matter. After the VICTIM purchases the money cards, the scammer requests the serial numbers displayed on the money cards so that the warrant can be taken care of. Those numbers are then turned into cash by the scammer depriving the victim of the money.

The Sheriff’s office would also like to remind citizens that they will never be contacted by phone requesting payment for outstanding warrants.

If anyone has been a victim of these scams, please contact the proper authorities. El Paso Police Department non-emergency number is 915-832-4400 and El Paso County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number is 915-832-4408.

“CLICK IT OR TICKET” ENFORCEMENT

May 21, 2018

“ Click It or Ticket” increased-enforcement effort runs May 22nd – June 3rd.

El Paso, TX – During the last two weeks of May the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office will be stepping up their enforcement of the state’s seat belt laws from May 21 to June 3, including the Memorial Day weekend.  Texas law requires everyone in a vehicle to be properly buckled up or face fines and court costs up to $200. Children younger than 8 must be in a child safety seat or booster seat unless they’re taller than 4 feet 9 inches. Even if occupants are not properly restrained, the driver faces fines of up to $250, plus court costs. 

When the “Click It or Ticket” campaign launched in 2002, only 76 percent of Texans used their seat belts now seat belt use in Texas has increased, to nearly 92 percent in 2017.  Unfortunately, 929 unbuckled Texans still died in traffic crashes last year. TxDOT’s “Click It or Ticket” campaign reminds drivers and passengers that wearing a seat belt is the single most effective step they can take to protect themselves in a crash. Wearing a seat belt reduces the risk of dying in a crash by 45 percent. That number jumps to 60 percent for pickup trucks.  While daytime seat belt usage continues to increase, nighttime use remains lower, leading to a higher rate of fatalities. Last year, the Texas A&M Transportation Institute found the number of drivers and front seat passengers observed in 18 cities not wearing seat belts increased by almost 50 percent from day to night.

In 2017, 57 percent of all crashes where occupants died and weren’t wearing a seat belt happened at night (between 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m.).  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the “Click It or Ticket” initiative in Texas is estimated to have saved 5,473 lives, prevented more than 95,500 serious injuries and saved more than $20.7 billion in related economic costs from 2002 through 2017.
