I wanted to share my recent experience with an APD officer. I was involved in a car accident on Hwy 290 on December 13th, and Officer Batham (AP8104) was the officer called to the scene. While no one was injured, it was still a difficult situation, as none of us expect to be in an accident. Officer Batham immediately took control upon arrival, ensuring all parties were okay, while doing what was necessary to record the event and let us all on our way. I so appreciated his demeanor in the circumstances - if he is representative of the professionalism of the APD, I am very proud to have the force looking out for all of us in Austin.
