Back to School Safety TIPS for drivers
As the summer of 2016 comes to an end and our children prepare to go back to school, there are some important things we need to remember to keep our kids safe this school year! Every time I see the children in our communities getting into the school routine, it all comes full circle for me as a parent and as the leader of a law enforcement agency. Your Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s office, has already reached out to the Chiefs of school districts within Precinct 4. Deputy Constables will be aiding our school district police in providing traffic enforcement and a police presence in and around our schools. We love our kids! We would like to share some suggestions to all the drivers out there to not only better prepare you as drivers, but hopefully make our roadways safer for our children this school year.
- All drivers need to recognize the special safety needs of pedestrians, especially our children. Generally, pedestrians have the right-of-way at all intersections. However, regardless of the rules of the road or right-of-way, you as a driver are obligated to exercise great care and extreme caution to avoid striking pedestrians with your vehicle.
- Drivers should not block crosswalks when stopped at a red light. Blocking the crosswalk forces our children to walk around your vehicle and puts them in a dangerous situation.
- In a school zone, when the warning flashers are blinking, you must stop and yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a marked crosswalk or at an intersection with no marked crosswalk.
- Pay attention to the speed limits around schools. The speed limits are lowered around schools where children normally walk and cross roads to get to the schools.
- Always stop when directed to do so by a school patrol sign, school patrol officer, or designated crossing guard.
- Children are the least predictable pedestrians and the most difficult to see. Take extra care to look out for children not only in school zones, but also in residential areas, playgrounds and parks.
- Don’t honk your horn, rev your engine or do anything to rush or scare a pedestrian in front of your car, even if you have the legal right-of-way.
- It is against State Law to pass a school bus with the red flashing lights on, loading or unloading children. (If a roadway is divided with a physical barrier, the opposite direction roadway may proceed with caution) Traffic behind the school bus traveling in the same direction MUST stop.
- School buses use yellow flashing lights to alert motorists that they are preparing to stop to load or unload children.
- The area 10 feet around a school bus is where children are in danger of being hit. Stop your vehicle far enough from the bus to allow children necessary space to safely enter or exit the bus.
- Be alert. Children are unpredictable. Children walking to or from their bus are usually very comfortable with their surroundings. This makes them more likely to take risks, ignore hazards or fail to look both ways when crossing the street.
- Never pass a stopped school bus on the right that is loading or unloading. It is illegal and could have tragic consequences.
- Lastly, please remember not to talk or text on cell phones in a school zone, it is illegal and can distract the driver from seeing pedestrians. I hope some of these suggestions will better enable you as a driver, and keep our children safe! It is our goal to do all we can to help keep the children of the community safe as they travel to and from school this year.
There are children entering the pool and swimming. The children are not authorized to enter. WE ALL must get involved to reduce or even better ELIMINATE these violations. Neighbors, I ask that you please be observant when passing by the pool facility. If you see anyone inside of the gated area (other than facility staff) PLEASE PLEASE contact the sheriff office at 713-221-6000.
A member of our Community Leadership Team will be contacting the Harris County DA's Office in the upcoming weeks to request that criminal trespassing charges be filed for EVERY violation at our pool. The deputies will be instructed to exercise a Zero Tolerance enforcement, when practical. AND REMEMBER...TOGETHER WE OUTNUMBER THE CRIMINALS.

Citizen's Police Academy
The HCSO’s Citizen’s Police Academy (CPA) is 13-week program designed to give Harris County residents a working knowledge of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, including police procedures and protocol. Residents meet once a week and learn many aspects of law enforcement, such as the Texas Penal Code, Patrol Procedures, Gang Awareness, Terrorism and many other topics. Residents will gain a better understanding of how police services are conducted in their communities and see “how and why” deputies make some of their decisions in the course of their duties.
Graduates of the CPA play a vital role in their community by improving communication between residents and law enforcement and by providing local input and support throughout the County.
The CPA is free and enrollment is open to qualified individuals. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and reside in Harris County. A thorough background check will be conducted on each applicant.
Residents interested in participating in the CPA must fill out and mail an application.

LATE HOUR LOITERERS: Contact police ( 713-221-6000) if you notice teenagers (or anyone suspicious) wandering around your street after reasonable hours. The Sheriff's Dept. is glad to check on kids who are away from their homes at late hours. Many times, the parents are not even aware that they have sneaked out. Don't hesitate to let law enforcement know about an unusual situation.
