After serving the citizens of Corpus Christi for over three decades, Chief of Police Mike Markle is announcing his retirement.

Chief Markle will be retiring in May of 2021, after accepting a job in the private sector. The City of Corpus Christi has benefited greatly from Chief Markle’s professionalism and long dedicated service to our community.

Chief Markle will spend the next month working with city leaders and the command staff, who he believes are individually and collectively adept, to ensure a smooth transition with the interim Chief.

We want to thank Chief Markle for his years of service to our Country, to the Corpus Christi Police Department and to the citizens of Corpus Christi.

Please help us wish Chief Markle the best in his new endeavors.
