The Texas Alliance for Safe Communities (TASC) today released the following statement regarding Gov. Greg Abbott’s State of the State speech:
“Texans deserve a criminal justice system that delivers justice and protects our communities. TASC applauds Gov. Greg Abbott for laying out policies to make Texas safer by addressing mental health issues in our schools, among veterans and in our communities. We also support the governor’s efforts to secure our communities by shutting down gang crime and human trafficking in the state, as well as his call to ensure victims of rape and sexual assault receive the resources and justice they deserve.”
TASC is a non-profit coalition of public safety advocates committed to promoting responsible public policies that strengthen security and curb violent crime in Texas. TASC advocates for principled criminal justice solutions that ensure accountability in the criminal justice system and keep Texas communities the safest place to live, work, and raise a family.
