More than two years after a series of mass protests triggered budget cuts for the Austin Police Department, and nearly a year after voters rejected a proposition to expand the department’s ranks, Austinites remain split in their perceptions of law enforcement. 

Seventeen percent believe the city is spending the right amount on policing, compared to 25 percent who feel the city spends too much, 38 percent who feel it spends too little and 20 percent who aren’t sure, according to a June survey of 507 likely voters commissioned by Notley and conducted by national pollster Change Research for the Austin Monitor.
