The patrol division is comprised of 17 full-time officers. Officers are responsible for responding to emergencies, answering calls for service, performing street-level investigations, performing traffic enforcement, and serving the public safety needs of many within the City Limits. The Patrol Division is led by Captain David Muniz.
Captain David Muniz began his Law Enforcement career at the age of 19 with the Nueces County Sherriff’s Office Jail Division. After graduating from the Del Mar College Regional Police Academy in 2005, Captain Muniz started as a patrol officer with the City of Sinton.
During Captain Muniz’s 6 years with the Sinton Police department, he served one year as Corporal and 3 years as Patrol Sergeant. At Sinton PD, Captain Muniz’s center of interest focused on gang intelligence and documentation for the State of Texas. Captain Muniz continues to gather intelligence on and document gang members within the City Limits. Captain Muniz’s main duties, now, include overseeing the day-to-day operations of the patrol division.
In 2012, Captain Muniz was hired with the City of Aransas Pass as a patrol officer, continuing his efforts in gathering gang intelligence, as well as documenting known gang members. After one year on patrol, Captain Muniz was promoted to Patrol Sergeant. During his capacity as a patrol sergeant, his duties included but not limited to supervising his assigned patrol shift. Captain Muniz was able to facilitate the use of the Texas LESO Program (formerly known as the 10-33 federal surplus property program) which affords the police department access to excess Department of Defense Property, at no cost to taxpayers.
