AUSTIN July 22, 2015 – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) leadership today briefed state leaders in Prairie View, Texas, on the ongoing Sandra Bland investigation. Today DPS is also making available the dash camera video from the traffic stop of her vehicle on July 10, 2015.

“DPS has been working closely with the family of Ms. Bland during this investigation, and the department extends our sincere condolences for their tragic loss,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “It is important that her family has confidence in the efficacy of this investigation, which is why the Waller County Sheriff’s Office and District Attorney originally requested investigative assistance from the Texas Rangers; and it’s also why DPS requested the FBI assist in this investigation.”

“This team of investigators is committed to conducting a throrough and impartial investigation. When the Texas Rangers and FBI investigation is complete, it will be turned over for review by the District Attorney, who has indicated it will also be brought before a grand jury,” said Director McCraw.


Pending the outcome of the investigation, Trooper Brian Encinia, who conducted the traffic stop, has been assigned administrative duties. Once the investigation has concluded, any violations of DPS protocols or procedures will be addressed.
