Transcript I Like to Ride My Bicycle! Officer Diego Tristan patrols Robertson Stadium on bicycle. Bicycles provide officers with a quick and sensible way to maneuver campuses, downtown streets, and crowds with out the restrictions of other kinds of transportation. Photo by Brandy Stoesz CMPUS Hoy safe y 2001-2002? 9 as our cdnpus in "F tl l'a' Do Those Things Really Work? A brave emergency call box stands amidst a sea of busy students, waiting patiently to be needed. These boxes were stationed in every major parking lot to provide anyone in trouble with quick easy access to the police. And yes, they do work. Photo by Brandy Stoesz oL 7 otnclent Life There has always been a major concern over the safety of college campuses, and our campus was no exception. Because of this concern, the University took steps to ensure that the campus was as safe as possible, with plenty of lights around the grounds and a police department on call whenever needed. Jamila Musa, a sophomore fine arts major, said she never needed assistance, but she was reassured by the option to get an escort at night. Student workers helped carry out the operations and support service areas of the campus police department. Cougar personnel served as additional eyes and ears for the department and reported suspicious people or activities to police staff members. They also performed a variety of community services such as jump-starts, jimmying locks, escorts, and handicap assistance. You could recognize the Cougar Patrol personnel by their red shirts, hats, and photo identification cards. But not everybody felt safe. Media production student Ronnie Rodriguez said that last fall he was a car theft victim. "They took my CD player. I don't know what time this happened because I was here all day long." Rodriguez said. Several random crimes sprees took place last year. There was a rash of break-ins in all the parking lots. Only a few radios and CDs were taken and no suspects were apprehended. Also, there was the devastating loss of the treasured Hakeem Olajuwon jersey. There were no suspects, as the jersey was poorly guarded, and was never recovered. Most surprising, though, were the armed robberies that occurred near Moody Towers. One student, was taken to an ATM and made to withdraw hundreds of dollars in exchange for keeping her car. No one was hurt in these robberies and once security was beefed up the assaults ended. Aside from these sparse attacks most crime was petty theft, such as stealing all the fire extinguishers from the dorms. Federal law requires that all U.S. universities make their campus crime data available to the public, and each year the campus collects and publishes the information on the website at <http://www.uh.edu/admin/police/offense.htm>. Story by Jackie Gil ,ltotft*» Oh No Was I Speeding? An officer patrols on foot and leaves his faithful side kick behind to guard the parking lot Sometimes just the presence of a police vehicle can turn away crime. When criminals see those signature lights they think twice about their actions. After all, the law could be nearby! Photo by Brandy Stoesz Oanipus becnrity \35
