Corpus Christi Police Chief Floyd Simpson promoted Lt. Michael Alanis to the position of Captain this morning during a short ceremony at Police Headquarters.  Alanis is a fifteen-year veteran of the Department and most recently served as the supervisor of the Financial Crimes Unit within the Criminal Investigation Division.  Prior to that, Alanis supervised the Department’s Public Information Office, and also served as Shift Supervisor in the Uniform Patrol Division.

Captain Alanis joined the Police Department in 1998 after six years of service in the United States Air Force.  He spent several years in the Patrol Division and was selected as a Field Training Officer in 2003, following a short stint in the Traffic Unit.  In 2003, Alanis earned a transfer to the Community Relations Division, where he served as a Crime Stoppers Officer and assumed additional duties as the Department’s Public Information Officer.   During his time in the Community Relations Division, Alanis was instrumental in building a vibrant Campus Crime Stoppers program within the area’s High Schools.  In 2007, Alanis  transferred to CID, where he served as an Investigator with the Auto Theft Task Force.

In 2008, Alanis earned promotion to the rank of Lieutenant and returned to the Uniform Patrol Division.  In June of 2011, Lt. Alanis was given a temporary transfer to the newly formed Public Information Office.  Tasked with improving the means by which the Department delivers news and information to the public, Lt. Alanis immediately began work on a comprehensive social media strategy.  Alanis designed the CCPD Blotter Page, improved the Department’s FaceBook page, and set up two distinct Twitter accounts that enable the Department to communicate breaking news and vital information directly to the public and news media in a real-time environment. “It was truly impressive what Lt. Alanis was able to accomplish in such a short period of time,” stated Commander Todd Green.  “His improvements have laid the ground work for the Public Information Office and will undoubtably lead to future success in our ability to communicate quickly and effectively with our citizens.”

In January of 2012, Lt. Alanis returned to the Uniform Patrol Division.  In April, he was transferred again to CID, where he served as the supervisor of the Financial Crimes Unit until his promotion to Captain.

In addition to his full-time position as a supervisor, Alanis has served with distinction the past two years as one of two volunteer CCPD Honor Guard Lieutenants.  During his tenure Alanis has been invaluable in the overall improvement and professionalism of the Honor Guard, especially the newly formed “Rifle Team”.

Captain Alanis possesses a Bachelor’s degree from Midwestern State University. He has been married to his wife, Felicia, for 23 years.  They are proud parents of a daughter, Staci, a senior in college, and Kyle, a sophomore in High School.
