Patrol

I hold our patrol officers to the highest level of integrity and strive to build strong bonds with the citizens of Aransas Pass through compassion, wisdom and commitment. Protecting and serving is more than an expression, it is the very core purpose of any police officer to provide the service the citizens deserve.
