The San Marcos City Council congratulated members of the San Marcos Police Department and Texas State University following the international recognition of a local program that focuses on strengthening ties between different segments of the community.

The ACT program — “Achieving Community Together” — was honored as a finalist for this year’s Herman Goldstein Award for Excellence in Problem-Oriented Policing at the 22nd annual Problem-Oriented Policing conference in Miami, Fl. earlier this month. The prestigious award recognizes outstanding police agencies from around the world that engage in innovative and effective problem-solving efforts and achieve measurable success in reducing specific crime, disorder, and public safety problems.
