LEO Jurisdiction

Does the Metro police (or any) not have any jurisdiction restrictions? Or are they just all over?

I do believe Metro has jurisdiction all over City of Houston and portions of Harris County, but don't mark my words, but I do know they have more jurisdiction than HOV lanes and Park n Rides.

jurisdictional law is weird.
example:
Texas A&M University police have jurisdiction over the entire county that Texas A&M is in (Brazos County). They also have jurisdiction over the entirity of any county that Texas A&M operates a facility in. Texas A&M operates a facility in each one of Texas' 254 counties.
Which means Texas A&M cops have statewide jurisdiction.

I know this doesnt answer your metro police question, but i just wanted to give an idea of how squirrelly it can get.

Today, the METRO police officers are a important segment of METRO's Department of Police & Traffic Management. Officers regularly patrol a 1,285-square-mile-area comprised of seven patrol districts and have been empowered with full police jurisdiction and authority in Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery, and Waller counties. The Department of Police & Traffic Management's Vice President & Chief of Police Thomas C. Lambert supervises 265 personnel, of which 177 employees are sworn peace officers. Analysts, directors, executive assistants, managers, police support personnel, project managers, security guards, traffic engineers, traffic management communications specialists, and wrecker drivers comprise the Department's non-sworn employees. Employees are assigned to any one of the seven divisions within the Department of Police & Traffic Management: Patrol, Professional Standards & Accreditation, CBD/TMC Patrol, Houston TranStar, Traffic Management, Program Control, and Operations & Administrative Support divisions.

I know that at least one of the Metro cops is a good looking chick.

City of Bellaire has a chick that looks eerily similar to the cop on Super Troopers. Anyone evr been pulled by her?
