The Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) encompasses Bikes, Directed Patrol Officers, Enduros, and Crime Prevention. CRU diligently collaborates with citizens, businesses, community leaders and other city departments to combat crime and quality of life issues from different vantage points to find solutions that cannot be met by a singular entity. CRU participates in community events and meetings providing presentations and information. Because the Corpus Christi Police Department believes strongly in supporting our community, CRU maintains an active role in numerous functions - Operation Safe Return, Shop with a Cop, Christmas food basket and toy delivery, and Neighborhood on Watch.
The Crime Prevention Advisor serves as a resource to the community facilitating awareness and crime prevention through public outreach, city sponsored events, school presentations and events and community meetings to inform and educate citizens regarding a variety of topics. Education is achieved through informative presentations, resources, programs, and literature designed to reach everyone residing in our diverse community.
