On January 31, 2020, the Corpus Christi Police Department suffered the untimely passing of Officer Alan McCollum who was killed in the line of duty at age 46. We mourn the loss of a great co-worker, friend, husband and father. There are few words to express the pain in our loss not only to the Corpus Christi Police Department but to our community.
Officer McCollum served with the Corpus Christi Police Department for seven-years and was a twenty-one-year highly decorated Veteran of the United States Army. Officer McCollum was awarded numerous decorations, medals, badges, citations, campaign ribbons; to include being a recipient of the Bronze Star.
Officer McCollum was a valued member of our Honor Guard, our SWAT Team and earned a life saving award.
Officer McCollum is survived by his wife and three children.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Officer McCollum.
