Do you live in District 5? Are you concerned about the cost of policing in Austin? What about incidents of police brutality and misconduct? Then come to the District 5 Community Forum on the Austin Police Contract to learn more!

The most important public process most people have never heard of is going on right now in Austin — the police union contract negotiations — officially known as «Meet & Confer.» During the process, which happens only every 3-5 years, the city and the police union (aka the Austin Police Association) negotiate wages, benefits, public oversight, transparency and discipline for officers.

How much of the city budget the police account for and whether officers are held to account for misconduct over the next five years will depend largely on what happens over the next few weeks or months. The Austin City Council will ultimately decide what happens next. Join us to learn about the issues with the current contract, the status of the new contract negotiations, and how you can get involved!
