APD Strategic Plan
APD Strategic Plan
The Austin Police Department would like your feedback as part of the development of the Strategic Plan. This plan will focus on providing direction and establishing priorities as our department continues to grow and change, as technology evolves, as demands shift and as APD and our community face new challenges and opportunities. The intent is to look at implementing a plan that helps APD build a department that is innovative, transparent, community-focused, and highly trained. This plan will communicate our overall direction, forming a logical framework that connects our goals, strategies, and measures, which can be applied to everyday work.

Our Roadmap: How did we get here
Over the past 10 months, APD has hosted numerous listening sessions, across the department, conducted a Community Workforce Survey, and engaged community members. These efforts have contributed to the bigger picture and process to get us where we are today.
Our Roadmap: Where we are now
As a result of these various engagements, we have been able to narrow down our strategic focus areas to five categories. It is important to note, these categories are still in draft mode and could change. As we begin our second round of community sessions, APD would like to present our top five priorities to the community in an open house format.
