HOUSTON – Deputies with Harris County Precinct 4 Constable partnered with TxDOT to enforce a new state law that prohibits camping in public places.
According to Constable Mark Herman, his office received numerous complaints from area residents pertaining to illegal camping.
In a partnership with TxDOT, House Bill 1925, which criminalizes camping in public areas allows Precinct 4 to authorize patrols to manage areas and will help keep underpasses within the Precinct 4 area free from camps.
Anyone who sees someone setting up camp in prohibited areas is urged to contact Precinct 4 deputies.
Those caught camping where prohibited will be relocated, Constable Herman said.
