Getting those burglars arrested in your neighborhood is only the start of the criminal justice process.   What happens after the arrest is largely out view and out of mind for most of us.   But the criminal justice process is the most important action that happens after the suspect is arrested.  Come and hear Travis County

District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg speak to us on the issues and challenges of the Travis County District Attorney's Office.  





We will also have on hand Bob Nicks, President of the Austin Firefighters     Association.   Bob will be available to answer your questions about the recent wildfires and other concerns you may have regarding AFD staffing, equipment and response times for fighting wildfires.   He says our worst wildfire has not happened yet and Austin ranks second nation in potential wildfire hazard conditions.   Northwest Austin is the highest risk area. 





Neighborhood Watch Leaders Networking Breakout at end of meeting:  Come and meet the CLASP team and others from around the city.  Bring your ideas to share, hear what others are doing, meet your counterparts from other neighborhoods!   There will be people on hand to make you more familiar with being a neighborhood crime analyst, how to set up or revitalize a neighborhood watch, how to set up a patrol program.   We can help you link up with resources that will make your neighborhood safety program a success.
