On August 11th Austin Police Department Planning Supervisor Yuki Miyamoto announced during the Public Safety Commission meeting, that the Austin Police Department will now be placing the grants they are currently seeking and retaining on the City of Austin website.
This will allow citizens to review grants that APD seeks to obtain, including details about the grant, and when the next action is to be taken. This comes after continual pressure from TAG activists calling on the City to provide more transparency and accountability in the grant receiving process. The change will make it possible for TAG to better understand, and combat the federalization of our local police.
Thank you to all the TAG activists who continue to work hard to bring about a more accountable government. Our persistence is paying off, so keep up the good work!
