Public Safety Office

The Governor’s Public Safety Office administers more than $580 million in federal and state grant funding to promote strategies that improve public safety, support victims of crime, prevent terrorism, and prepare communities for the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to Texans.

Our office consists of teams focusing on Border Security, Terrorism Preparedness Programs, Victims Services, Justice Programs, Child Sex Trafficking, Crime Stoppers, and our Sexual Assault Survivors Task Force. 

For more information on PSO’s programs and operations, read PSO’s Biennial Report to the Legislature.

We are also proud to administer the Governor’s Star of Texas Awards.
