Operation Proud Partnership Meets with Crestmont Residents

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Operation Proud Partnership, a program aimed at improving parts of town that may have quality of life issues or crime problems, has recently expanded to the southside area.

They have specifically set their sights on the Crestmont neighborhood, near Kostoryz and Holly. Residents from that area met with police and City officials Tuesday night to discuss concerns and problems plaguing that area.

Officers and volunteers hit the streets last week, along with volunteers, going door to door to ask residents what concerns they had regarding safety, crime and other quality of life issues. They compiled those results and presented them to residents Tuesday night during the meeting, which took place at Galvan Elementary School.

Some of the biggest concerns for the area included graffiti and vehicle burglaries. It was also an opportunity for folks to get to know the officers who patrol their streets, something that is really important to the people who live here.

"We want to hear from them, face to face, with a call sign they know this is a human being who cares about my neighborhood," said Commander Heidi Frese of the Corpus Christi Police Department.

Representatives from the Corpus Christi Fire Department, Cit Parks and Recreation and Code Enforcement were also on hand to interact with residents and answer any questions they might have had.

The Police Department is always willing to lend an ear, or meet with you, no matter where you live; and don't forget, you can submit questions, concerns and crime tips all online.
