Racial Profiling Compliance

Texas Law Enforcement Complies with Senate Bill 1074 Racial Profiling

The UHD 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 a University of Houston Downtown police officer.

The University of Houston Downtown Police Department 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 could result in information that may produce different accounts of the same incident. These disagreements 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 the University of Houston Downtown Police Department 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 713-221-8065.

The University of Houston Downtown Police Department would like to know about positive police contacts. Please write the Chief a letter or note to let him know about a positive contact with our officers. We will let the officer know about your letter and a copy will be placed in the officer's personnel folder.

We are very proud of the relationship the University of Houston Downtown shares with the community. Our longstanding goal is to provide our citizens with a safe community where all may live without the fear of crime.

 

Richard D. Boyle, Chief of Police
