Safety in Austin
While you might be on campus during the day, you will likely be spending most of your nights and weekends off campus. As an Austinite, you should utilize helpful resources like Austin 3-1-1, the APD app and weather alerts.
UTPD launched a program that assigns an officer to a particular area, including some areas off campus. Using the district map, you can identify and contact your district officer representative for non-emergencies.
Similar to the UTPD district representative program, APD has officers assigned to specific areas in Austin. Each officer is dedicated to serving their assigned community, so reach out to your representative for non-emergency issues.
