WHAT IS H.E.A.T.?
H.E.A.T. is a statewide vehicle registration program administered by the Texas Department of Public Safety that helps law enforcement officials identify stolen vehicles.
Any vehicle owner in Texas can obtain decals for his/her car or truck that authorizes law enforcement officers to stop the vehicle and verify ownership, between 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m., anywhere in Texas. Vehicle owners can also grant additional authority at the time of registration to have their vehicle stopped any time of the day it is being driven from Texas into Mexico.
A car is stolen in Texas every five and a half minutes. More vehicles are stolen between 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. than any other time. Simply by enrolling, you make it a lot harder for a thief to drive away in your car.
HOW DO YOU ENROLL?
Vehicles may be registered at the Crime Prevention Unit at the Victoria Mall Sub-Station, 7800 N. Navarro Street (between Chick Fil-a and Sears), at the Victoria Police Department, 306 S. Bridge, or online HERE at the Texas DPS website .
Registration is FREE and you do not have to be a resident of Victoria County to register your vehicle.
