Walk in the Dark Recap

The National Night Out/Walk in the Dark event this past Tuesday was a huge success. Over 1,000 students, faculty and staff came out to Lynn Eusan Park to participate in the event. Tables were set up showcasing the services and information that the Department of Public Safety provides to the campus community. Individuals even had an opportunity to experience the fatal vision goggles. Fatal vision goggles are used to impair your vision as it would be if you were intoxicated. Participants were given an opportunity to shoot hoops and or drive a scooter without the goggles and then later with the goggles. Fatal vision goggles were the hit of the event. Department of Public Safety personnel were on hand to answer questions and provide tips on various topics like crime prevention on and off campus, fire safety and safe dating practices.

Also showing their support for the Department of Public Safety and the University of Houston were: University Services, Campus Recreation, Health Center, Counseling and Psychological Services, Staff Council and Information Technology to name a few. Next year’s event will be even bigger and better.

A little later in the evening the Walk in the Dark took place. Over 100 people gathered to start the walk at Lynn Eusan Park. The students, faculty and staff were broken up into 5 groups. Each group walked the campus, discussed concerns and identified areas that made them feel unsafe. The information gathered at the Walk in the Dark will be presented to the appropriate administrators on campus for repair and or possible implementation. In past years, the reports generated from the Walk in the Dark resulted in over $1,000,000 in repairs and or lighting on campus.

Participants were placed into a drawing for a free SGA t-shirt just for coming out and joining in the walk.
