Cite Litter Violators In Cameron County Beach Parks

Currently, the law enforcement within the Cameron County Beach Parks (Isla Blanca Park, Andy Bowie Park, E.K. Atwood Park and County Beach Accesses 5 & 6) is controlled by the Pct. 1 Constable Division under Constable Horacio Zamora and there is a severe lack of effort in enforcing litter laws within the Cameron County Beach Parks on South Padre Island, TX. As a result the parks have become hazardous to beach users with whole and broken glass bottles, shredded aluminum cans and dirty diapers being left behind all over the beach. Unless there is some sort of enforcement of laws and penalties levied, there will never be a behavioral change within the parks and the litter issue will continue to persist and worsen.

The Surfrider Foundation South Texas Chapter is asking you to join us in asking Constable Zamora and his Deputies to start writing citations immediately within the parks so that beach users and litterers will be made aware that Cameron County is very serious about keeping their beaches healthy and safe for its beach visitors.
