Education and training recommendation: The History of Police & Race in America

In March 2020, OPO recommended that the Austin Police Department (APD) add a course to the Training Academy about race relations and policing in the United States and Austin.

The course, titled The History of Police & Race in America, was developed in partnership with the University of Texas School of Law. The goal of the course is to provide historical context to interactions between APD officers and the communities they serve.
