Congressman Joaquin Castro

Representing the 20th District of Texas

Press conference with Councilman Rey Saldaña

As a member of Congress, I worked with the San Antonio Police Department and the Department of Justice to secure a $1 million federal grant for SAPD body cameras. But we need more than just cameras to ensure law enforcement performs according to the high standards we expect of them. Today, Councilman Rey Saldaña and I called for greater accountability in the city’s proposed police contract. Making these reforms improves San Antonians' safety and benefits all the good officers whose service we cherish.
