Texas Council on Family Violence

Since 1989, Constable Precinct 5 has worked alongside others concerned with family violence in Austin including the Austin Police Department, the Center for Battered Women (now SafePlace), the Sheriff’s office and Travis County Judges, Municipal Judges, and the District and County Attorney’s offices.

Over the past 20 years, this group has increased its membership, adding Lifeworks and the Texas Advocacy Project, as well as several counseling groups for offenders. Now the coalition, the Austin/Travis County Family Violence Task Force, meets once a month to network and collaborate on projects such as creating Austin’s only Family Violence Court (Court 4) and public awareness campaigns with Capitol Metro and the Austin Independent School District.
