TCSO to Host Town Hall Meeting this Saturday

TCSO will host a Town Hall Meeting on Saturday, May 5, 2018, from 1:30 to 3:30 pm, at the Millennium Youth Entertainment Complex, 1156 Hargrave St. Austin, TX 78702. The presentation topics will include services provided to each inmate at the Travis County Jail and Correctional Complex based on the screening and classification process, as well as TCSO’s 2017 Racial Profiling Report.

The meeting will be moderated by Nelson Linder, NAACP Austin.

Travis County Sheriff’s Office Building Bridges: Brick by Brick is a community agenda initiative that was formed from a National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) grant awarded to the Travis County Sheriff’s Office in 2005. A group of more than 60 Travis County community members met in February 2006 during a one day summit and made the recommendation to “optimize building bridges” with local communities, law enforcement, media and faith based groups to create meaningful and sustainable conversations. Since then, TCSO and Austin Police Department have carried on the agenda, hosting quarterly Town Hall meetings.
