Report Nuisance Bars and Night Clubs in Harris County

The After-Hours Task Force begins its work at the scenes of drunk-driving crashes and works its way backward to determine when and where alcohol was obtained.  Our team has strong working relationships with law enforcement across Harris County, but we also need your help to ensure that nuisance bars and night clubs are not contributing to the carnage on our roads.  

We consider a bar or club a nuisance if it: 

  • Serves alcohol to underage individuals; 
  • Serves alcohol to drunk individuals; 
  • Serves alcohol after hours; or
  • Acts as a driver of crime. 

To report a nuisance bar or night club, email our office at or call 713-274-1500.
