Transcript A row of unmanned patrol cars sit in front of the campus police station. Officers peruse the school grounds every hour of the day. Photo By: Mark Smith Safe and Sound at School UH Police Force Spins A Safety Network Across Campus BY: Lana Khawaja Turn on any of the major networks between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. and you are sure to hear about a killing or a robbery. Living in a big city like Houston, crime is inevitable, but how is crime on the University of Houston campus? "We have our own campus police patrolling the streets and parking lots of UH 24 hours a day, making sure that students are safeT according to Fran Howell, UH spokeswoman. UHPD consists of a 40-person police force, Howell said. Stationed in every parking lot is a call box that students can use when needed. Just open the lid and push the button — an operator will provide assistance. By using the call box, the police can trace which parking lot the student is in and can assist in a number of ways. If a flat tire is the problem, they can get someone out to help, or even unlock a car with its keys in the ignition. They even offer the Cougar Patrol, which escorts UH students and faculty anywhere they need to go on campus after dark. Call (713) 743-0600 or use the call box. "Many people don't know about the escort service UH has to offer. Those who do don't take advantage of it;' said UHPD Lt. Malcolm Davis. Here are some tips from UHPD on how to stay safe after dark: Carry mace -- it can be purchased at any hardware store for just a few dollars. When walking to and from class, keep your head up and eyes looking forward -- many people have a tendency to look at the ground and not pay attention to their surroundings. When approaching your car, look inside to make sure there's nobody hiding in the front or back seats. Most importantly, avoid walking alone as much as possible — there's less risk of a crime occurring if theres even one other person around.
