NOTICE OF FORMAL COMPLAINT ICMS #: 2021-0065 February 12, 2021 Complaint: Mr. submitted an online complaint to the Office of Police Oversight stating: “ On or about , APD officer , , interrupted, startled, and blocked my jogging activities to tell me that Balcones Park is closed. He also asked me if something was wrong with me. I told the officer that I had jogged the same route for over 300 straight days, and I was trying to run my five miles in the rain and get back home safely. I was wearing jogging clothes and a reflective vest. I had a flashlight in one hand and a bottle of water in the other hand. I don’t understand how something could have been wrong with me after he startled, disrespected, and blocked me from running or jogging out of the parking lot with his vehicle. I also told him that I am a board member of the Millwood neighborhood Association. I am a Black male that has lived in the same neighborhood for over 31 years, and a few police seem to cause problems where there are no problems. When I do have a problem and call the police, they write a report and say they are inundated with other activities to solve a problem. It is a frustrating situation. I am too old to be dealing with police officers that are not helpful and friendly. It seems now that a Black man cannot jog in my neighborhood without the police blocking me with their vehicle to ask me if anything is wrong with me and say the park is closed and being disrespectful. If wants to stop me, at least he can be friendly and kind about it. I did not appreciate his rude behavior. All I was trying to do is jog my nightly five miles and get back home safely without going to jail. I hope only a few police officers are like . When someone is rude and disrespectful, like , someone needs to be aware of his behavior. I completed my five-mile jog on , without incident.
