TEST , SITE CONTENT REPOST:
Although Austin remains one of Texas’ safest cities, in 2015, my life changed forever. As I was sleeping, in the bedroom of my East Austin home, I was awaken, in the middle of the night, shot multiple times and forced to literally fight for my life, with an armed intruder. I am grateful that the APD and the Travis County District Attorney’s Office did an effective and professional job bringing my perpetrators to justice.
However, three years later, the APD police response times to reported crime and violent crime itself, continues to rise in Austin. Whether by the city’s own metric or by an objective community policing metric, the APD is understaffed.
I hold a B.A in Marketing from Clark Atlanta University, in Atlanta, Georgia, a Masters in Public Health from Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and I am currently completing my PHD in Educational Leadership from Prairie View University in Prairie View, Texas.
