Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan
CFS P25. Reduce crime rates, thereby improving the perceived and actual safety in neighborhoods across Austin.
CFS P26. Incorporate community outreach and involvement in public safety in order to build trust between the police force and Austin’s minority communities.
CFS P27. Provide public safety services to newly annexed areas and areas with increased activity, such as new neighborhoods, redevelopment areas, transportation corridors, and activity centers.
CFS P28. Provide preventive safety education to Austin residents, with particular attention paid those individuals who speak little or no English.
CFS P30. Improve collaboration between public safety providers and city planners to incorporate best development practices to reduce crime by such means as improved lighting, density, better designed neighborhood ingresses and egresses, and putting more “eyes on the street.”
