Leave input on APD recommendations
Friday, March 26, 2021 by Tai Moses
Austinites who are avidly following the city’s work on the police reform initiative known as “reimagining public safety” may be interested in viewing this recording of a virtual conversation held Tuesday in which the Office of Police Oversight shares “the preliminary findings of independent consultants Kroll & Associates’ assessment of the Austin Police Department’s training academy.” As the Reimagining Public Safety blog posted, “Kroll’s work is part of City Council’s Resolution 66, which includes a comprehensive evaluation of the APD training academy curriculum, training, culture, and recommendations for improvement.” In a Q&A session following the presentation, 40-plus community members weigh in with their feedback, which will find its way into Kroll’s final report, due in mid-April. It’s not too late to comment on this material; if you’d like to add your two cents about the APD training academy, leave your feedback here.
