APD Assessment and Reorientation
MEASURE© was contacted by the Austin Police Department (APD) on August 23, 2017 in order to assess its current mission and vision statements and subsequent policy. Through a descriptive and case analysis, MEASURE© seeks to aid in the reformation of APDs current mission and vision statement. Currently, APD’s mission and vision captures an outdated philosophy and neglectful approach to public safety and engagement. These statements fail to vital themes associated with modern public safety practices, purposeful initiatives and community orientation. MEASURE© recommends that the APD vision and mission statement reflect the ideal conditions for the Austin community based on how things would look if the aforementioned themes were completely and perfectly addressed.
