At a 9 a.m. news conference TODAY (Friday, March 28), Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt will be joined by leaders from 16 law enforcement agencies, the Harris and Montgomery County District Attorneys’ Offices and Mothers Against Drunk Driving in announcing an unprecedented campaign aimed at ridding our streets of drunk drivers.
The “Fatality Crash Reduction Campaign” news conference will be held at the Beth Yeshurun Cemetery at 1037 North Post Oak at Old Katy Road. The family of an innocent victim killed by a drunk driver will be at the news conference to speak on their loved one’s death.
Of the top 10 most populous counties in the United States, Harris County has the highest percentage of alcohol-related fatality crashes.
DVD copies of footage of HPD officers handling DWI suspects, Public Service Announcements and campaign-related photos will be distributed to the media.
The media is asked to enter the cemetery at the main entrance where they will be directed to park.
