Austin boasts the third-lowest rate of violent crime among the 30 biggest U.S. metro areas, and many credit Manley for keeping the peace. He has made community collaboration a central focus, urging officers to forge ties with homeless people and with Austin’s Latin American immigrant communities. And he earned widening acclaim last year by keeping the city calm during a terrifying string of bombings.
