UHDPS works overtime to keep traffic moving


“Traffic is moving,” “I expected the traffic to be much worse on campus with all the construction” are just a few comments overheard by students on campus the first day of classes. With thousands of vehicles coming to campus and tens of thousands of students walking in and around campus, the University of Houston needs back up. That back up happens to be the field personnel of the University of Houston Department of Public Safety. Every year before the semester starts, the Police Department pulls together their mobility plan. This plan aligns staff in specific locations to assist with the ease of flow in and around campus. Over 125 individuals are positioned to assist vehicles, pedestrians and construction on campus. Between traffic control and vehicle assistance, they are literally working overtime. Chief Ceaser Moore comments, “it’s a tough hot job and your police, security, and parking personnel are constantly striving to ensure that everyone is safe both and in and around the campus. We are very lucky to have such a dedicated group to protect us on a daily basis.”
