Our thoughts and prayers are with all those involved in today’s tragic event in Alexandria, Virginia. Austin is the Capital of Texas and we often have many Congressman visiting our great city. On that note, anytime incidents of this type occur, we take them seriously and continually monitor any and all threats. The Austin Police Department works closely with our public safety partners both locally and federally. APD will make necessary adjustments to security needs should they arise. We cannot stress the importance of if you see something, say something. Report any suspicious behavior or activity by calling 9-1-1.
