SkyTower Valero donated to Corpus Christi Police Department

As part of its emergency preparedness and response efforts, Valero works closely with neighboring communities to ensure their safety.

For example, Valero has donated funds to the Corpus Christi, Texas, police department for a pair of $100,000 SkyWatch Towers. The towers use technology to provide for mobile surveillance from dozens of feet high to help prevent or monitor emergency situations.
