The Corpus Christi Police Department invites qualified men and women to apply for a rewarding and dedicated career as a police officer. Corpus Christi is a unique community that balances the beauty and calm of a sparkling village-by-the-sea atmosphere with big city benefits and opportunities.

We are a city of over 300,000 in population and our officers provide a wide range of police-related services that make the job interesting and challenging. We are a large enough department to engage most contemporary police functions, but small enough to still remember your first name and not treat you like a number. The pay and benefits package, the affordable cost of living, and the friendliness of our citizens make the position of police officer a much sought-after career.
