DPS Donates Bicycles to UH Auxiliary Services

The season is upon us to celebrate the act of giving. To close out the 2010 year, the UH Department of Public Safety donated two lost and found bikes to the UH Department of Auxiliary Services.

When the Department of Public Safety acquires a lost bicycle, we are required to hold that bicycle for 60 days in hopes that the owner will come to retrieve it. If efforts fail, the bicycle is available for donation. The Department of Public Safety has once again made a donation - but this time it is to a department in the Administration & Finance family. Stephanie Carpenter, Office Assistant for the Department of Public Safety and head of the Lost and Found Retrieval effort for the Department of Public Safety, comments, “I feel ecstatic and excited that the bikes are going to a program that is useful.”

The Department of Auxiliary Services will be developing a program that allows individuals to use available bikes for getting from point A to point B on campus. This is part of the “Go Green” initiative. More information on the program will be available soon.
