Ask a Cop
University of Houston Department of Public
Safety is always looking for ways to open
the lines of communication between the
Police Department and the university
community. Our patrol officers find that
many of the students, faculty and staff they
come into contact with on a daily basis have
questions about police procedures, criminal
laws, and how we as university police
officers handle criminal activity on campus.
You can visit our
Frequently Asked Questions page to see
some of the more common questions.
If you don't find your answer there, UHDPS has instituted “Ask a Cop”, where the community can present questions to police officers, and get answers from the men and women who patrol their campus. Questions submitted should be limited to those that do not require an immediate reply. Though we will do our best to answer questions about laws and possible sanctions, it should be noted that we will not offer legal guidance, and none of the information we provide should be construed as such. Community members with questions regarding a serious matter, of a time sensitive nature, are asked to telephone UHDPS at 713-743-3333 and speak with an on-duty officer.
