CORPUS CHRISTI - The Corpus Christi Police Department held a town hall meeting last night to talk to residents about their safety during this holiday season.
Dozens of people showed up for the meeting at the Corpus Christi Country Club.
A police spokesman told the audience in recent days they've responded to 54 stolen car calls and 120 other crimes they say could be stopped by neighbors.
Police say residents should call police when they see something out of the ordinary. One resident says he'll definitely be watching out.
"It scares you when there's a fire next door to you and then, 2 days later, there's a shooting in a real quiet neighborhood ... when nothing's ever happened in 8 years."
Officers say this is a peak time for crime with holiday shopping in full swing. People are urged to keep valuables out of sight whether they're in your car or in your house.
