Since August 2017 the Aransas County County/District Attorney’s office has declined to accept any criminal cases from the Rockport Police Department (RPD). The table below summarizes the criminal activities that have occurred within the last six months. Despite multiple attempts at formal and informal mediation (initiated by RPD), the County/District Attorney refuses to prosecute these criminals, creating an environment that may put citizens and visitors at greater risk. Further information can be obtained on each of these occurrences by clicking on the “Crime Reports” link on the Police Department page at

There are 2,667 law enforcement agencies in Texas and the Rockport Police Department is one of just 145 agencies compliant with the Texas Police Chiefs Association Law Enforcement Agency Best Practices Recognition Program. RPD is fully operational and continues to perform its duties to protect citizens and visitors to Rockport.
