AUSTIN (KXAN) — Several community leaders and police chiefs got together to discuss racial profiling, Wednesday night.
The forum was held at the Carver Museum in East Austin. It covered filing complaints and how to move forward as well as how to bring people together.
“We never stop working together collaboratively and we work constructively, not destructively,” Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said.
Austin Mayor Steve Adler, along with other police chiefs and sheriffs from Central Texas, attended the meeting.
In March, KXAN investigated a racial audit that triggered a change in Austin police data collection. Chief Art Acevedo ordered an independent audit of his department’s data collection after a KXAN investigation uncovered his officers recording the wrong race of some minority drivers.
