Austin - TX DPS strife

Will Texas Department of Public Safety continue to patrol Austin streets? The Mayor says they are uninvited but DPS reportedly will continue their presence from the Texas Tribune. 2 incidents spurred Mayor Kirk Watson to be concerned about DPS policing…an officer allegedly pointed a gun at a 10 year old. Also, a man was shot in the arm during a high speed chase. Austin is short 300 officers. Late Thursday, it was announced Governor Greg Abbott is sending 30 additional troopers to the capitol city.
