Police officers in Laguna Vista are preparing to launch the Laguna Vista CARES – Christmas initiative on Tuesday, Dec. 1.

“If someone is stopped for say, a broken headlight, an officer may pull them over and offer a friendly warning, and then wish them well and encourage them to be safe,” said City Manager Rolando Vela.
