Brenham has been included on a list of high-volume Department of Public Safety offices.
Texas DPS recently launched efforts to deal with overcrowded driver’s license offices, one of which—according to the DPS—is Brenham’s office at 975 US 290 West. Other offices considered by DPS to be high-volume include Hempstead, Humble, Rosenburg, Conroe and Huntsville.
These plans of the DPS aim to limit crowds and reduce wait times, by bringing additional workers and troopers to busy offices. The added personnel will help customers determine if they can complete their transactions online, helping to reduce crowds.
DPS will also be hiring over 100 positions through the next few months, to increase staffing at the offices considered the most crowded. DPS says the hires will not start immediately, because of required background checks.
The DPS plans to take these efforts to the busiest offices by August 27th.
