Harris County Precinct One Constable Alan Rosen announces the multi-agency No Refusal DWI Initiative during the Memorial Day Weekend. The initiative will begin Friday, May 25, 2018, and end Monday, May 28, 2018. During this initiative, officers from various jurisdictions will secure a search warrant for a blood sample from all persons arrested for DWI who refuse to voluntarily provide a breath and/or blood sample.
The goal is to provide a strong proactive Law Enforcement presence and response to reduce, or significantly impact the number of DWI related offenses and fatality accidents in each designated area within Harris County. Annex 31, located at 7300 N. Shepherd, will be used as a processing center to streamline the arrest process for participating agencies.
Harris County Constable Precinct One Constable’s Office will work in conjunction with local jurisdictions throughout North and Central Harris County to serve law enforcement, as well as the community by saving lives, preventing injuries, and protecting property. This effort provides all resources needed by the arresting officer, at one location, to make the arrest faster and streamlined.
Participating agencies will assign units to their high volume areas for a saturated law enforcement presence in their respective jurisdictions. Participating agencies include: Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office, Texas Department of Public Safety, Harris County District Attorney’s Office, Judge John Clinton, Harris County Criminal Court No. 4, Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office, Harris County Precinct 5 Constable’s Office, Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Harris County Toll Road Authority Houston Police Department, Krysta’s Karing Angels, and Mothers against Drunk Driving.
