This morning was the annual State of the CCPD Breakfast where guests enjoy a hot meal, interact with members of the police force, and are entertained and educated by the Corpus Christi Police Chief’s state of address. He spoke in front of 750 attendees, almost double than those who attended last year’s State of the CCPD address, and focused on the relationship between the police department and the community. The event, which benefits the Corpus Christi Police Foundation, was able to raise over $100,000 in an effort to fund high priority law enforcement needs that are beyond the scope of the City budget. “One of our major successes has been the partnership that we have maintained with the community and other law enforcement,” Markel stated. “We have been very open and very transparent and we are going to continue that this year.”
Herrman and Herrman, P.L.L.C. is proud to be a sponsor of the Corpus Christi Police Foundation. They’ve created a ‘100 Club’ to offer those in the city the opportunity to support our officers. By becoming a member, you can help to protect our community and make Corpus Christi a safer place to live, work and raise our families. The organization is made up of community and business leaders along with citizens who strive to make a difference in the safety of our city. As City Councilwoman Lillian Riojas said, “we all have to work, collaborate, and partner up toward our goal, which is a safer Corpus Christi.”
