Who's Hosting This Event?

City of Austin Office of Police Oversight
Who We Are:

When people have concerns or complaints about potential police misconduct, those concerns need to be heard, investigated, and resolved. At Austin’s Office of Police Oversight (OPO), everything we do is to promote an atmosphere of earned trust between Austinites and the Austin Police Department (APD). We do this by making it easy, accessible, and safe for Austinites to provide information and start the process.

Additional Event Context: In May 2021, the Mayor’s Office, the Mayor’s Committee for People with Disabilities, the Office of Police Oversight, and the Equity Office hosted the first part of this event series and heard from community members about their experiences and concerns with law enforcement in Austin. In response to this feedback, the Office of Police Oversight is hosting this event with discussions centered around building greater knowledge and understanding of people living with disabilities and the role intersectionality has in communities’ lives. We are inviting you to be at the table!
