Commission Updates

The CPRC is a group of volunteers appointed by the City Manager as another tool for accountability and transparency in policing. Commissioners can:

  • Make policy-level recommendations regarding discipline, training, community relations, and the Office of Police Oversight's (OPO) complaint process
  • Address any other issues of concern by the community
  • Review patterns and practices of the Austin Police Department (APD)
  • Assess critical incidents and review individual cases of police misconduct
  • Make fair and objective recommendations, and make decisions based only on the facts and evidence
  • Assess the effectiveness of OPO

The Office of Police Oversight provides administrative support to the Community Police Review Commission. In 2021, the CPRC hosted 15 public meetings and developed seven recommendations for the Austin Police Department. Their recommendations include proposed changes to APD's racial equity policies, mental health training, and the General Orders. They also provided recommendations regarding critical incident cases the commission has reviewed. You can access these official recommendation documents and learn more about commission updates on their website, atxpolicecommision.org.open_in_new
