Law Enforcement Flood Horizon City To Reduce Crime In Area

By ABC-7 Reporter Celina Avila

El Paso, Texas -Last week, several law enforcement agencies joined Horizon City Police for “Operation Flood.”

The Sheriff’s office, Department of Public Safety and Constable Precincts 2, 4 and 6 issued 216 traffic citations and made 23 arrests for various violations.

“They’re doing it just to upset people,” said one Horizon City resident.

While not everyone’s happy about it, most people living in Horizon City say they welcome the effort.

“The war’s not in Afghanistan, the war is next door. Yeah…keep it safer over here that’s what we want. We want it safe, ” said Joseph Henderson.

“If you have something to hide then maybe you’d be worried, but if you have nothing to hide than what’s the problem? ” said Sandra Piseno, who also doesn’t mind the increased police presence.

Sheriff’s deputies say each day the operation was conducted, there were a minimum of 25 additional law enforcement units working the area.

“We showed a strong presence in the community and we’re here to protect them,” said Horizon City Officer Ortega.

Sheriff’s officials say Operation Flood will continue throughout El Paso County.
