The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office is happy to support the Fort Bend County Tax Office for a seamless operation.

However, to ensure everything runs smoothly and the safety of our residents, we are proud to announce that Fort Bend County Sheriff Eric Fagan and his deputies will be providing additional security and traffic control during this period.

Attention drivers: As children return to school after the holidays, the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office would like to remind you to remain vigilant for children commuting to school by bus, on foot, scooter, skateboard, or bicycle. Please exercise caution, adhere to speed limits, and prioritize the safety of our young pedestrians.

We are currently investigating 2 incidents involving children being struck during their commute to school this morning. At 7:17 AM, in the 10600 block of Sawmill Park Drive, in Sienna, Fort Bend County, Texas, a 16-year-old was riding his bicycle to school when he was struck while crossing the street. At 8:02 AM, in the 3900 block of Eastland Lake Drive, in Richmond, Fort Bend County, Texas, an 11-year-old was struck while walking to school.

Thankfully, in both of the aforementioned cases, the children did not sustain any serious injuries.

These incidents serve as a reminder to all of the importance of the below safety guidelines.

For Drivers:

Exercise Caution: Reduce your speed, maintain vigilant awareness, and prepare to come to a complete stop when approaching a crosswalk.
Stay Alert: Pay close attention to your surroundings, adhere to all traffic signs and signals, and actively avoid distractions while driving.
Yield to Pedestrians: Always prioritize the safety of pedestrians in crosswalks by yielding the right-of-way and refrain from passing a vehicle stopped at a crosswalk.
Know the Law: Texas drivers should also be aware of the Lisa Torry Smith Act, which amended section 544.007 of the Texas Transportation Code. It requires drivers to stop and yield the right of way to pedestrians or cyclists lawfully in the intersection or an adjacent crosswalk. An offense under the Lisa Torry Smith Act is a Class A misdemeanor, except in the case that the pedestrian or cyclist suffers serious bodily injury. In that event the offense is a state jail felony.

For Pedestrians:

Stop and Look: Before entering a crosswalk, pause and carefully scan for approaching vehicles. Make sure it's safe to cross.
Stay Alert: When walking put away electronics that take your eyes and ears off the road.
Assist Children: If you have younger children with you, guide them safely through the crosswalks, ensuring they understand the importance of looking out for vehicles.

In 2024, the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office looks forward to continued community outreach. We also hope to assist more Fort Bend County residents through FBCSO Take Me Home

Take Me Home is a database for people who may need special assistance if they are alone or in times of emergency.

Happy New Year from the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office!

As we step into a new year, we wish you joy, safety, and prosperity.

Let's make 2024 a year filled with positivity and community support. Stay safe, and here's to a wonderful year ahead!

Please note that The Sheriff's Office administrative offices will be closed on Monday, 1/1, in observance of the holiday. In case of emergencies, please dial 9-1-1. For non-emergencies, please call us at 281-341-4665.

12/31/2023

Every year during this time, across our country, numerous individuals are rushed to an emergency room after being struck by gunfire due to careless firing of weapons in the air for celebration.

Celebratory gunfire is illegal and can be deadly. Let’s protect our loved ones this New Year’s celebration by not firing weapons into the air. Remember, “what goes up, must come down” and a projectile may cause injury, death, or property damage.

A bullet fired into the air can travel up to 2 miles and can return at speeds higher than 300 feet per second. Consequently, 200 feet per second is enough to perforate the human skull and result in a fatality.

Furthermore, shooting towards the ground is also not safe because the bullet could strike a rock or other hard object causing it to ricochet and possibly strike someone, including the person firing the weapon.

Celebratory gunfire can be deadly, accounting for 4.6% of all stray bullet-related deaths and injuries, according to a study published by the National Library of Medicine.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind you that it is illegal to discharge a firearm in Texas, unless done lawfully for hunting or a sporting event under legal conditions. Firing a weapon can lead to an arrest for crimes of various levels of severity, such as deadly conduct, terroristic threat, and assault. Additionally, if a gun discharge kills a person, the charge may include murder.

“Celebratory gunfire is not just a reckless tradition; it’s a serious threat to our community,” says Sheriff Eric Fagan. “Bullets fired into the air can result in tragic consequences when they come down. Let’s celebrate responsibly and ensure the safety of our neighbors, friends, and loved ones. Report any incidents immediately, and let’s work together to prevent unnecessary harm and tragedy.”

In our continued effort to connect with our youth, today we enjoyed pizza and great discussions with students at Lamar Consolidated High School.

Students got a chance to speak to cadets from Gus George Law Enforcement Academy Class #46 about why they chose a career in law enforcement and to gain insight about becoming a police officer.

Students also learned about the Juvenile Justice Advisory Council (JJAC) and how to "get R.I.C.H." (Respect, Integrity, Collaboration, Honor).

Additionally, Michael Dangerfield, LPC, NCC, with Fort Bend County Behavioral Health Services, and Deputy Deaver with FBCSO CIT (Crisis Intervention Team) spoke to the students about the importance of mental health.

We would like to thank Chief Henry Garcia and the Lamar CISD Police Department for joining us today, as well as officers from the Rosenberg Police Department. We deeply appreciate and value the collaborative partnerships we have with other law enforcement agencies. Together, we are committed to fostering a safe and more secure community.

On Sunday, October 29, 2023, at approximately 7:24 pm, Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office Deputies were dispatched to a convenience store parking lot in the 8600 block of FM 1464 Rd in Richmond, Fort Bend County, Texas in reference to a shooting that resulted in a homicide and aggravated assault investigation. When deputies arrived, they found a deceased 17-year-old male who had been shot to death and an adult female who also sustained gunshot injuries.

Information learned through the investigation was that a suspect vehicle drove up to the victim’s vehicle with a suspect shooting both victims and then fleeing the area.

The female victim was treated at the Houston Medical Center for her injuries.

Pursuant to the ongoing investigation of this case, one of the suspects involved was identified as Jahlil Rainey, a 19-year-old male from Houston, Texas, who was arrested on October 31, 2023, on a Murder Warrant with a $750,000 bond.

11/29/2023

Fort Bend County Sheriff Eric Fagan has been elected by his peers to serve as the Chair of the Houston High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Executive Board.

Since taking office in 2021, Sheriff Fagan has served on the Houston HIDTA Executive Board. Last year, he was unanimously elected as Vice Chair. On November 16, 2023, the Houston HIDTA Executive Board unanimously elected Sheriff Fagan to serve as the Chair of the Houston HIDTA Executive Board. His term as Chair will run for one year, through November 2024.

Created by Congress in 1988 with the Anti-Drug Abuse Act, the HIDTA Program was established to "coordinate and assist federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies (LEAs) to address regional drug threats with the purpose of reducing drug trafficking and drug production in the United States." The purpose of the HIDTA Program is to "disrupt the market for illegal drugs by dismantling and disrupting drug trafficking and/or money laundering organizations, as well as improve the efficiency and effectiveness of HIDTA initiatives." There are currently 33 regional HIDTAs across the United States, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.

The Houston HIDTA Executive Board is comprised of leaders of 20 area law enforcement agencies: 10 local and state agencies and 10 federal agencies. It is the duty of the Executive Board to assess drug trafficking threats in the region, develop strategies to address the threats, develop initiatives to implement the strategies, and propose funding to implement the initiatives.

"Sheriff Fagan has been an active member of the Houston HIDTA Executive Board for the past three years, bringing valuable input to the board, especially in light of his many years of law enforcement experience to draw upon," says Houston HIDTA Director, Mike McDaniel. "Our communities are facing unprecedented challenges brought to them by the regional and national overdose epidemic. The Houston HIDTA is looking forward to the experience and leadership that Sheriff Fagan will bring to this fight.”

"I take great pride in serving on the Houston HIDTA Executive Board, recognizing the significant benefits and resources it provides to Fort Bend County," says Sheriff Fagan. "Our unwavering commitment ensures we will persist in the crucial fight against drug trafficking and drug overdoses, striving for a safer and healthier community."
