Meet and Greet

Come early to introduce yourself and meet other CLASP participants, presenters and special guests. Later, get a peek at the 911 call center and the Emergency Operations Control Room on the 3rd floor of this facility.

2:00pm Meeting Begins

Guest Speaker:
Sgt. Rod Reyna of Precinct 2 Constables Office
Organizing a Neighborhood Watch

Sgt. Reyna is the Community Outreach Coordinator for Constable Precinct 2 with hands-on experience establishing Neighborhood Watch groups. He has recently offered a four part seminar in the Pflugerville area on Civic Action Building Blocks. He will talk about some Neighborhood Watch practical nuts and bolts, but also the bigger picture of how a neighborhood watch can be the building block for your community.

Learn about the CTECC Center

Roger Wines, CERT Volunteer, will give us an overview of this amazing facility. Our meeting is in the Emergency Operations Center room, with some impressive display technologies that help leverage the area’s AV resources – especially its fixed-location cameras.

We will be able to view the 911 call center from above. The CTECC Operations Center brings several state, county, and municipal government agencies together under one roof so they can share command-and-control resources in the area. This unification is intended to strengthen the Travis County area’s emergency communications and traffic management.

Networking Sessions before and after the presentations

Have you been wanting to start up or revitalize a Neighborhood Watch? Meet Laura DiCarlo who has a successful block captain program in Allandale. She can give you tips, suggestions and resources.

Are you interested in Neighborhood Patrols? Check out the KVUE video here and the interview with Barton Hills NA President John Luther. He can give you an overview of how to get started.

Mary Rudig from the North Austin Coalition of Neighborhoods will be on hand to talk about:

Want to put your finger on the pulse of crime in your neighborhood?
Jack Darby will be on hand to show you the krimelabb database and how to gather crime data for your area.
