Our Story

MEASURE was founded in 2015 by,  Jameila "Meme" Styles when she challenged the Austin Police Department to "show me the numbers" they were using to report the results of agency performance measures. Realizing the disconnect between the department’s big data reporting and the community, Ms. Styles was prompted to create a methodology to measure community policing.


​Today the organization has grown to not only address community policing but health, education and economic disparities.
