UHDPS Lost and Found Gives Back

The University of Houston Department of Public Safety’s Office of Lost and Found collects items from all over campus. You name it, they probably have it.

Often, this is the last place that members of the campus community come to seek lost items. Lost and Found holds anything from watches to cell phones. The State of Texas has requirements for how long the DPS is required to keep specific lost and found property, and once that date passes, they are free to find that item a new home.

Members of the Office of Lost and Found work diligently to find the original owners for the items, but if those efforts fail, they must seek new homes. A very high number of items are collected and donated.

For example, the DPS recently donated 109 calculators, with 38 given to the Center for Students with Disabilities, 31 to the Learning Support Services, and 40 to the CASA (Math Lab). In addition to the calculators, the Office of Lost and Found has donated eyeglasses, sunglasses, clothing, wrist watches and video cameras.

“The number of items we collect in a week is astounding,” said Lieutenant Patrick Lollie.

So before you give up your search for those missing glasses that you left on the table at M. D. Anderson Library last week, make one stop at the Department of Public Safety, Office of Lost and Found.
