The Corpus Christi Police Department will be conducting a Summer Crime Initiative for the 3rd consecutive year.

In order to accomplish this goal the police department will be taking proactive steps that will include the Uniform Patrol Division, Narcotics Unit, Traffic Unit, Criminal Investigations Division, Public Information Office, and Parking Enforcement Unit. In addition to officers from the CCPD we will work in conjunction with other law enforcement partners from our area.

The Summer Crime Initiative will run from June 21st through the Labor Day weekend. Traditionally, during this time frame, most school districts are out for the summer which has the potential to lead to a rise in juvenile crime, traffic related issues, and gang issues. The police department will work to combat any rise in crimes against persons and crimes against property. The listed units will conduct on-going operations that will target the following areas of concern:

  1. Juvenile crimes to include curfew violations
  2. Burglaries to include auto and home
  3. Unauthorized Use of Motor Vehicle
  4. Graffiti
  5. Gang related crimes
  6. Traffic related offenses
  7. Parole and probation checks
  8. Sex offender checks

The police department will work with the media via the Public Information Office to announce our initiatives and our efforts in working to keep all citizens safe.
