ARANSAS PASS, Texas — The Aransas Pass Police Department needs some new officers.

The department also is sponsoring its annual Cops for Tots Toy Drive.

Aransas Pass Police Chief Eric Blanchard spoke of his needs with KRIS 6 Sunrise anchors Paulo Salazar and Sierra Pizarro during an interview Monday morning.

Blanchard said he needs a police officer and a telecommunications officer and has no applicants for either position.

And demand is highest during the holiday season for the department’s annual toy drive with lagging donations so far.
