Berry was appointed to the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement. He is one of the APD officers charged with allegedly using excessive force at the 2020 protests.
AUSTIN, Texas — Gov. Greg Abbott on Friday announced his appointment of the indicted Austin cop and defeated Texas House nominee Justin Berry Texas Commission of Law Enforcement (TCOLE).
Berry will now serve on the state regulator that according to its website, sets and enforces standards to ensure Texas residents are served by highly qualified, ethical law enforcement, correctional and telecommunications personnel. He was appointed for a term ending August 30, 2027.
Berry, a senior police officer at APD, was among 19 Austin Police Department officers indicted in February 2022 by a Travis County grand jury on charges of excessive use of force. These charges and allegations were made in connection with protests following the 2020 killing of George Floyd and the shooting of Michael Ramos in Austin.
Berry is now due to appear in court later this year, on October 31, on charges of aggravated assault by an officer.
After his arraignment, Berry denied any wrongdoing and said an APD internal investigation “long ago acquitted” him and the other officers. He also accused Travis County District Attorney José Garza of attempting to influence his campaign at the time to represent Texas House District 19.
Gov. Abbott backed Berry in March after the primary went to a runoff when neither Berry nor former Austin councilman Ellen Troxclair got a majority of the vote. Troxclair defeated Berry in the Republican runoff in May. She will now meet Democrat Pam Baggett in November.
Berry received a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and a master’s degree in leadership and management from Sam Houston State University. He completed his Basic Peace Officer Training at the Austin Police Academy and holds a Texas Master Peace Officer License from TCOLE.
Governor Abbott also appointed Kingwood’s Martina Lemond Dixon as TCOLE. Her term of office ends on August 30, 2023.
