Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC)

CapMetro is broadening its Public Safety program over the next year. The program’s new focused approach will better serve customers, staff and the community, and position the agency to serve the Central Texas of today and the transit system CapMetro is building for tomorrow.

Starting early in 2022, the new Public Safety Advisory Committee will provide input and feedback to CapMetro staff and the board of directors to help develop and steer this program, including guiding the creation of policies and procedures for the comprehensive program.

The committee will be comprised of 10 members appointed by the CapMetro Board with expertise related to social and criminal justice reform, public safety, social service, community service, and professional and personal experience, with or a relationship to historically marginalized or underserved communities. One of the 10 seats will be a representative from the Amalgamated Transit Union, and another one of the 10 seats will be a retired law enforcement professional. We will work with stakeholders, members of our community and local organizations to recruit and appoint members with a wide range of backgrounds, experience and knowledge to support this comprehensive approach to safety.

This committee will meet at least quarterly, with the location and time to be determined when those meetings are scheduled.

**The application period for Public Safety Advisory Committee members closed on December 5. Thank you to those who applied. We will be in touch in the coming weeks.
