Later today, the Austin City Council will begin adopting a budget for the next fiscal year.
We can’t afford to cut cops, cancel cadet classes, or reduce overtime when crime is increasing in our community.
We support police reform and alternative responses to domestic violence and mental health, but not sacrificing public safety for political expediency.
For more than twenty years, the Greater Austin Crime Commission has worked to keep everyone safe. Not just some neighborhoods. Every neighborhood.
I’m thankful for you and thousands of other Neighborhood Network supporters who have stood up for safety this summer.
