AUSTIN (KXAN) - The Austin Police Department's initiative to clean up crime in the Rundberg Lane area of North Austin continued this week.
On Wednesday, "Restore Rundberg" invited community members to a meet and greet reception.
By making connections, with neighbors meeting neighbors, police hope it will lower crime in the area. Many in the area say the increased patrols and community engagement is making a difference.
"Obviously the police responds to what the community wants...what their concerns are," said Asst. Chief Steve Deaton with APD. "So this is a quorum tonight, so the community can put those ideas forward, so we can make this project what they want it to be."
The Restore Rundberg initiative is funded by a $1 million dollar U.S. Department of Justice grant.
