Actually, the city cop does have jurisdiction within his county.

To arrest you and turn you over to whatever jurisdiction you're in (Sheriff, Constable, other city police).

I drive up and down Fredericksburg road often (close to where I live) where 410 intersects between SA and Balcones Heights. Over the past week, I have seen increased activity with the Balcones Heights police pulling over people on the San Antonio side. Like A LOT more activity. I had remembered this thread and wanted to make a note to be careful in that area, they are waiting.

There must be a budget shortfall.

Maybe so....The BH cops are like bears that venture out of their natural habitat when food gets scarce.

All kidding aside, I am not sure why I am seeing a such huge increase of BH cops pulling people over on the SA side but I am certainly observing it this past week.

I'm absolutely grateful that I don't live anywhere near there & rarely have cause to drive by. It's simply horrific how modern society has allowed civilians to be terrorized and harassed by a small subset of the population. It's terrifying to be pulled over. After the plethora of incidents you wonder: am
I next?

The fact that such incidents are 1 in a million is irrelevant. I don't want to be pulled over & neither do others on the roads!! Stop the harassment! Police should be there to help, not hurt, whether physically or financially in one's pocketbooks.

Everyone needs to maintain vigilance & post police locations on Waze. Protect each other! Not the government!

This post isnt about whether the driver was wrong or not, keep bringing that up doesnt help the real question.

The observation is that the officer lied on where the violation took place. Why would he do this? To validate the ticket? If so, then it is invalid regardless if it was deserved. There are rules to how and where a traffic cop can write tickets. This seems like a blatant cover-up and/or way for BH to garner revenue.

The OP was cited for an expired registration. That's a moving violation anywhere on a public road in the State, not just a specific municipality or location, and it's not a judgment call, either. Either it was expired, or it wasn't. For example, a speed limit may only apply to a particular stretch of road, or a stop sign, traffic light, illegal turn, etc.; and a violation is a violation only if it takes place at a given location, and witnessed by a LEO as such. He could have just as easily been cited by any law enforcement agency in the State, who witnessed him driving the vehicle on a public road with the expired registration.


It's been over a month since the OP posted this, and he hasn't been back. I wonder if he's had his day in court, yet? If not, he can go before the judge or jury, and plead his case before them, if he wants to.

Municipalities in Texas with a population of less than 5,000 (which includes Balcones Heights), are limited to 30 percent of annual revenue from traffic fines. Fines in excess of that amount go to the State.
