Working in concert with staff from Aransas County and the Aransas County Independent School District the IT department provides computer technical support, email, and network security for all city departments. Included in the mix of programs in use by the City of Rockport are the Incode programs that handle various court, utility, and finance functions and Laserfiche for scanning documents for easier retrieval.
The Rockport IT Department works with the Aransas County IT staff to provide services to the joint city-county Law Enforcement Center and the associated Emergency 911 dispatch, Police Department, and Sheriff Department. These services include our 911 dispatch area, secure connections to the various criminal databases, and the use of mobile laptops in our patrol cars.
We are also involved in various other city projects, such as the CNG program and the various wireless access points at our local parks.
This department is also an integral part of the disaster preparation team, especially important due to Rockport's location on the Texas Gulf Coast.
