Police Host 29th Annual National Night Out

Corpus Christi Police Chief Floyd Simpson invites children to look through the new Corpus Christi Police museum

The 29th annual National Night Out produced 92 events throughout Corpus Christi on the night of October 2, 2012 for the purpose to reduce crime, reduce the fear of crime, and enhance public safety. The kickoff event in Corpus Christi was held at the HEB on Kostoryz where the Corpus Christi Police debuted the Corpus Christi Police mobile museum.

The Corpus Christi Police Forensics Division was at several locations to host the Prints for Life Program. The Forensics Lab Technicians provided 305 parents with documents that contained fingerprints of their child. There were 58 children printed at the HEB kickoff event, 90 children printed at Casa De Manana, and 157 children printed at Garcia Elementary. The Forensics Services Supervisor John Hornsby said, “I believe that the contact with the community and the positive impact we make on these children will extend well past National Night Out or any other single event.”
