Operation Proud Partnership Survey Given in Flour Bluff

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Police officers hit the streets of Flour Bluff Monday night, not so much to enforce laws but to listen to concerns that the residents have.

It is part of what the City calls Operation Proud Partnership, a concentrated neighborhood cleanup effort that the City began toward the end of 2012.

The Corpus Christi Police Department, along with other City departments, focuses on specific problems in different parts of the city. Residents were given a survey about how safe they feel in their neighborhood, and what quality of life issues are most important to them.
 
"Immediate area doesn't need a whole lot," Flour Bluff resident Lee Whitley said. "Some areas, gang control. Dog control."

"I'm disabled. Good to know they're out there preventing crime, not just answering phone calls," Flour Bluff resident Rusty Remington said.

While it gives people there a sense of security, it also gives police the opportunity to talk face-to-face with residents.

"It shows them we are trying to be visible," said Emily Perez of the CCPD. "improve the neighborhood and community."

On Feb. 11, residents will meet with police and talk about the results of the survey, which problems were mentioned the most and what the CCPD plans to do to address the issues.
