Spring Break 2022

With Spring Break 2022 upon us, the Corpus Christi Police Department has a few reminders for our community and visitors to our wonderful city.

Be sure to pack some patience as traffic can be congested as you attempt to make your way to the beach. The Corpus Christi Police Department will have additional officers patrolling the beach along with additional traffic officers patrolling the roadways.

When you arrive on the beach here are some simple rules you must follow.
-No glass containers are allowed on the beach.
-Alcohol consumption is allowed so long as you are of age.
-The speed limit on the beach is 15 mph and all traffic laws apply including Driving While Intoxicated.
-You must purchase a parking permit to park on the beach.
-No dogs on the beach from Access Rd 3 to Zahn Road on the North side of the Packery Channel.
-No wood pallets can be used to build a fire and fire pits can only be 3x3x3.

We hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable Spring Break 2022.

-If it is raining turn on your headlights so that you can heighten your visibility to others.

No Shave November

In the month of November, you may see some of our male officers with more facial hair then usual as they will be participating in “No Shave November”.

To support cancer awareness officers will be able to grow beards once they have made a $50.00 donation to the Corpus Christi Police Officers Association. The Association will then donate the collected funds to cancer fighting organizations. 

Our female officers were authorized to wear pink in their hair for the month of October for Breast Cancer Awareness and will continue to wear pink in November.
