Precinct 8 attended the funeral service for Deputy Esqueda, a true hero, and his memory will never be forgotten.

Members of Precinct 8 attended the funeral service for fallen Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Fernando Esqueda earlier today. It is very clear to all who never had the privilege of meeting him that he was truly a great man. For him to be taken in such a cowardly way has left a hole in the hearts of his family, fellow law enforcement officers and his many friends that will never be filled. Our thoughts continue to be with his family and the entire Harris County Sheriff’s Office during this unimaginable and difficult time. Thank you for your service Deputy Esqueda.

Avoid any more close calls like the one Precinct 8’s Deputy Jenkins had to handle.

Yesterday, Precinct 8 Deputy Jenkins rescued stranded motorists after they attempted to drive through a flooded roadway in the 500 block of Red Bluff Rd. Deputy Jenkins was able to pull the driver of the black sedan to safety moments before the rising floodwaters reached the windows.

Please pay attention to the weather in the coming days as storms are predicted for our area. Remember that your safety comes first.

❗️Never drive through flooded roads. Just 12 inches of water can carry away most cars.
❗️Avoid walking through floodwaters. It only takes 6 inches of fast-moving water to knock over an adult.
❗️Find alternative routes. Even if it delays you, it’s not worth the risk.

School is out, kids are out and about. Precinct 8 has some tips for humans.

Summer break is among us! This is an especially busy time when many kids are playing at the park, walking to meet friends or taking their bikes to the pool. As we all enjoy the summer months, we wanted to share important safety reminders for drivers and pedestrians. Parents can help by reminding their children about staying safe on the roads.

PEDESTRIANS:
• Use sidewalk when available.
• If there is no sidewalk, walk on the left side of the roadway facing oncoming traffic.
• Always cross at intersections or marked crosswalks.
• Look in both directions before proceeding to cross a street
• Make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street. Never assume a driver sees you.
• Watch for cars that are backing out of a driveway or parking space.

DRIVERS:
• Reduce speed when approaching crosswalks.
• Stop for pedestrians.
• Yield the right of way to pedestrians when turning.
• Stay alert and minimize distractions.
• Double check behind you and around your vehicle when backing out of a driveway or parking space.

Constable Weaver was shot and killed after he and two other lawmen raided a dance hall on Yale Street that was being used as an illegal bootleg establishment. As they approached the building, approximately thirty people fled. The constables were only able to apprehend the owner’s daughter. As she led them to where her uncle was hiding, the constables were ambushed and Constable Weaver was shot twice, once in the elbow and once in the stomach. He was rushed to the hospital but died from his wounds a half hour later. The suspect escaped but was later found dead after he committed suicide. Constable Weaver was the elected constable of Precinct 8 and had only held the post for five months. He was survived by his wife and son.
