Vehicle Report Cards

The University of Houston Department of Public Safety will be issuing Vehicle Report Cards in the next two weeks. The Department of Public Safety uses these report cards to help bring awareness to better safeguarding your vehicle and belongings. The DPS does not want the campus community to become a victim of crime. This new program is geared toward the prevention of burglary and theft of motor vehicles.

University of Houston Department of Public Safety Officers will be taking pro-active measures to help you, the public, protect your property by monitoring your cars in selected parking lots and looking for property and items that may be targets for burglary or thefts. The officers will report to you, through written report cards, as to whether you have passed or failed the review. The program emphasizes the need to safe guard those items by removing them from view or securing them. This report will be placed on the windshield of your vehicle. If you pass the review, kudos to you, and if you fail the review, we hope this will help you better safeguard your property.
