City's Animal Control Gets New Computers, Cell Phones

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The City's Animal Control officers have some new tools to help them do their jobs more efficiently.

Over the past several months, the City has begun supplying new laptops and cell phones for all those who answer calls from residents. Animal Control Officer Christina Brown said the new gear makes a big difference.

"They supplied us with computers and phones that way we can instantly get the calls," Brown said. "All I have to do is hit F-12 on the computer. It refreshes the screen so I can see all the new calls that come in. I'm able to get the calls from my area and put them immediately into my box, and if I need to contact a customer, I can pull over and contact them immediately."

Brown said prior to the new computers and cell phones, it was necessary for officers to return to the office after each call.
