  ATTENTION AUSTIN POLICE ASSOCIATION MEMBERS
 
 

As President of the Austin Police Association I am honored to cordially invite all of our Austin Police Association Membership to the May 9th Austin Police Department’s Officers Distinguished Awards Gala hosted by the Austin Police Association and Austin Cops for Charities.

This prestigious awards gala will bring together our APD family and community supporters to honor Austin’s Finest and celebrate the contributions of Austin Police Officers.

The gala will include a social hour, dinner, cocktails, dancing and fellowship throughout the evening. Tickets and table reservations can be made via the APA Office starting today by calling 512-474-6993 or e-mailing val@austinpolice.com.

Below is the official invitation for this event. It has all the information regarding ticket purchases, table reservations and hotel room reservation rates at the Hilton Austin Downtown. The cutoff for the discounted room rate is Monday, April 27th so I would highly suggest booking your room as early as possible before the entire room block is used.

If you have any other questions regarding this event, please do not hesitate to call my office.

Sincerely,
Det. Kenneth Casaday, President
Austin Police Association

  The Austin Police Department Motorcycle Rodeo Team needs your help!!!  
 
 

In an effort to raise funds to offset out-of-town competition expenses and to continue the pride of our illustrious unit, the APD Motors Rodeo Team has created an online t-shirt fundraising campaign in order to raise money.  A Teespring storefront has been created with several basic options available.  For those unfamiliar with how a Teespring campaing works, here's the basic rundown:

  • Browse the selections and reserveyour desired item(s).
  • Checkout with a Credit Card, or PayPal.
  • IF THE PREDETERMINED GOAL IS MET, THEN THE SHIRTS WILL BE PRINTED, YOUR PAYMENT METHOD WILL BE CHARGED, AND YOUR T-SHIRT(S) WILL BE MAILED DIRECTLY TO YOU.  It is imperative that everyone places their shirt orders by the designated deadline of Monday, April 6, 2015.  Please spread the word to anyone (friends, family, co-workers, etc...) that you know that might be interested in purchasing a shirt--this will only help the campaign.  If the goal is met and the t-shirts go to print, then Teespring takes their flat-rate percentage of the profit and the remaining profit is sent to the APD Motorcycle Rodeo Team to be used to offset out-of-pocket travel costs.    
  • If the goal is not met, then the opposite happens--the shirts do not get printed, your payment method is NOT charged, nothing is mailed to you, and the campaign (and all fundraising efforts) die.   
  • Everyone who reserves a shirt will be updated on the status of the campaign by Teespring.  

Note:  There are several campaigns currently running in the Austin Police Motors storefront.  One of the campaigns (short and long sleeved gray t-shirts) was specifically categorized for the APD Motorcycle Rodeo Team, but these shirts are available for purchase by anyone and everyone.   Please keep in mind that Teespring charges a separate shipping charge per each campaign you order from, and unfortunately, they cannot combine shipping.  It may be beneficial to compile a group order to minimize separate shipping charges.  

If you have any questions about this fundraising effort or have any special design request for future campaigns, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.  The APD Motorcycle Rodeo Team thanks you for your support and we can't wait to see everyone wearing their t-shirts around!!

APA AND CLEAT TRAINING CLASS - APRIL 14, 2015
 

The Austin Police Association and CLEAT are offering free training to officers on Tuesday April 14th.  This training is in response to requests from officers for better training on dealing with plain clothes response to violent encounters.  Some of you may have received this training as it used to be offered at the APD training academy.  Feedback from officers who have attending this training has been overwhelmingly positive.
