The University of Houston Police Department supports the 77th Texas Legislature's mandate
prohibiting racial profiling in Texas. Our police officers work
under a departmental policy that is consistent with all state and
federal laws. The policy includes provisions for citizens to contact
us if they have a conflict with one of our officers.
UHPD realizes that
there will be disagreements, from time to time, with individuals
that come in contact with our officers. We realize that confusion,
different perceptions or possibly the timeliness of information may
produce different accounts of the same incident. These disagreements
between citizens and officers need to be addressed. We trust that
the vast majority of contacts between citizens and officers are
conducted in a positive, professional manner. The relationship
between the community and our officers is based on confidence and
trust. We cannot be effective without both the community and our
officers working together to achieve this goal.
Citizens feeling that they have a legitimate concern may make a
formal complaint to UHPD at any time by contacting any member of this department for
information on the complaint process. Additional information about
this process may be obtained by calling us at (713) 743-0610 or on
We are very proud of the relationship UHPD shares with the community we serve. Our
long-standing goal is to provide our citizens with a safe community
where all may live, work and study without the fear of crime.
