CYPRESS — Constable Mark Herman and members of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office gave a brief press conference regarding their Holiday Patrol Initiative to combat drunk drivers.

Keep in mind that Constable and Sheriff Deputies will be out in full force to locate and arrest motorists who have made the choice to get behind the wheel while intoxicated or under the influence of any illegal substance.

Constables have already reported 37 suspected drunk driving arrests, and the initiative will continue through the New Year.
