Keep it up cibolo police. Cibolo used to be a nice place to live. Now it is getting filled with people who do not care about their neighbors.

About that parking thing. Someone on my street complained because they did not like my truck parked in front of my house. They called the cops to complain and the officer had to respond. He apologized and was polite about it. It really has to do with nosy busy body neighbors. I did not get a ticket and the officer said I was not doing anything wrong and could contiue parking there if I wanted to. These people need to mind their own business and get a life.

I have lived in Cibolo 7 yrs. I will say after working on the south side of S.A. (military) and even visiting other areas of S.A., I can appreciate the police presence. Many outsiders know that Cibolo and police are synonomous terms keeping out the truly unwanted of S.A. I have been stopped a couple of times but I will admit, I was guilty. Don't take for granted knowing that you will wake up and your car is still there in one piece or yard figurines and forgotten childrens bikes/toys are still in the yard from the day before. I have met people who live in gated communities around S.A. for the sole sake of feeling safe/protected. There is no perfect city but peace of mind is priceless.

I'm with you Disillusioned, the Cibolo police dept has nothing better to do. I've never had any issues with the law until I moved to Cibolo. I've been harassed multiple times and when you need their help they're never around or just don't want to help. Our cars have been vandalized and broken into right in front of the house, as well as the house being vandalized and all those times the police we're nowhere to be seen. Just recently I had to call the police on an older guy who's been walking by and breaking tree limbs off our trees, simply because they were in his way.(real mature) I caught the guy red handed and when cops arrived they just wanted to bring up code compliance issues. Whether we were up to code or not wasn't the issue, the issue was that he was destructing our property. Basically they turned me into the bad guy,let the guy go and called code compliance on me. I run everyday down Cibolo Valley Drive and I am constantly ducking my head as I'm running to avoid low hanging tree limbs, but I'm not breaking them just because they're in my way. If they really bothered me that much I'd just run somewhere else. The bottom line is the Cibolo Police dept. is a joke and not a funny one either.

And by the way they're also leaving tickets on our cars for facing the wrong way. So we've corrected the problem and what do they do, they come out now and they measure how far our cars are from the fire hydrant. SERIOUSLY!, a cop was out there with a tape measure. We do use our driveway but sometimes have visitors or just need to park in front of the house for other reasons. I'm all for feeling safe and having police patrol the neighborhood but they have succeeded in making me feel like a victim and a suspect.

Many of you do not understand why we are out there doing what we are doing. Yes, parking by a fire hydrant may seem petty, however, what a lot of people don't realize is that (most) of the calls we get for parking issues are called in by your own neighbors. We are REQUIRED to a respond to ALL calls for service, whatever they may be. When we are out on calls we are more often then not being scrutinized by the people who called, usually anonymous complainants. If we go out there and find a violation and take action, you are upset with the police department. If we go out there and find a violation but take no action, we have to answer to our superiors why we did not enforce the law. If we go out there and find no offense and take no action, sometimes the person who originally called files a complaint against the officer saying they did not do their duty to uphold the law. If they are out there taking measurements it is because the officer is trying to be fair and determine if the vehicle is actually in violation. The best course of action as a citizen of the city is to familiarize yourself with the state laws and the city ordinances, which can all be found on the city's website. The city of Cibolo is a community oriented police department striving to keep the community as a whole happy and to allow them to enjoy the lowest crime rate in the area. In example, traffic laws are enforced so that the many people who jog and cycle on the main roads and neighborhoods may do so without worrying about reckless drivers and so forth. It is understandable that some people may have had unpleasant encounters with the police department. However, the city holds high standards of the officers it employs and does not tolerate the infringement of citizens rights. That being said, unfortunately it does not always turn out favorably to all involved parties to calls we have for service. Officers use their best judgment to the situations presented to them to determine the correct legal action that must be taken. I'm sorry that some of you have had less that pleasant encounters with the police department but I hope that this sheds at least a little light on what and why we do what we do.

those who are not using your garage you are all idiot, the police should give you ticket for parking in front of the house or the side street, it causes a lot of inconvenience, use your garage,park your car inside and not outside,don't use it as storage,you deserve to pay,no matter what beautiful or ugly track/car,don't park in front of your house nor the side street period,all the house have garage but you are not using it for the right purpose,all those car should be towed and you desrve to pay a lot

As a military family we have lived in many different places, no where is the driving as poor quality as we have found here in the San Antonio area (Maybe San Francisco comes close.) yet, in the city of Cibolo people watch better because the police are visible and make the stops. I feel better about my family being out and about in the city limits because of that. The police I have encountered have been very kind and helpful. I normally do not post to these things but felt the need to after seeing so many negative comments. I think we have to respect the tough job the police have. Having lived in areas where they are not as visible and seeing the difference in both crime and traffic, I appreciate the police in the Cibolo area!

Dont blame the street cops. The management is probably pushing a ticket quota down their throat at the City Managers urging. They probably learned it in Seguin. Someone whose seen this before.
