Neighbors Question APD on Enforcement of Troubled SE Side

People who live within several blocks of Montopolis & Riverside packed into a room at a cultural events center near Oltorf & Burleson Tuesday night to ask Austin Police about enforcement in their area.

One neighbor, who approached Chief Art Acevedo as he walked into the building, asked what is being done to deter criminals in their area.

Other neighbors complain of the stepped-up law enforcement downtown, near high-dollar real estate, but say they are not seeing more officers to contend with a noticeable uptick in crime.

Acevedo says police are concentrating on every area of town, hitting each one at a time and says a new computer system will help in assisting police efficiency and pinpointing where trouble spots are.
