We at the University of Houston Downtown Police Department are committed to the safety and security of all of our students, faculty, and staff. Our mission is to provide a safe and secure environment for all UHD students, faculty, staff and visitors. We are committed to preserving the peace, preventing and detecting crime, enforcing the law and protecting the rights of all citizens. It is our goal to work very closely with all members of the University of Houston Downtown family to ensure we are successful.
All officers are licensed by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement and have full authority to enforce federal, state, and local laws. In addition, officers are committed to a community oriented policing model that allows for the serving of university needs both on and around the campus.
