Please join us at the April Bryan City Council meeting, where we will be presenting feasible solutions for making Bryan PD's policing more equitable:

One solution we will propose is enabling residents to file complaints about police behavior without having to GO INTO the police station in person and possibly come face-to-face with the police officer they are complaining about. Other counties, like Harris and Travis, have web portals and other ways of submitting notarized complaints remotely.
