Welcome from the Chief

The University of Houston–Clear Lake Police Department is a state authorized full service police agency, providing law enforcement and security services to the UH–Clear Lake  campus community operating twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.  Our police officers are fully state certified and have the same powers as any other police officer in the  State of Texas. Our primary jurisdiction is the University of Houston-Clear Lake campus and outlying university properties.  We also take action as needed to provide assistance to  other law enforcement agencies and to protect university assets in the areas adjacent to our primary jurisdiction. 

We believe that providing exceptional law enforcement service and effectively responding to critical and emergency situations, while proactively safeguarding the lives and liberties of  the University of Houston-Clear Lake community, is an important mission. We must work with and have the assistance of everyone on campus. All of our members have committed  to serve the campus and fulfill our mission by being highly trained and always acting in good faith. In return we invite our fellow campus community to work with us through  proactive efforts designed to address issues before they become serious safety threats.

We have established this web site to enable us to be even more accessible to the community we serve and to others interested in learning more about our department.  It is designed to address many of the questions commonly encountered about our department and to give you an overview of our staff and services. Please contact us directly if you have further questions at 281-283-2222 or by email at police@uhcl.edu, and by all means don't hesitate to say “Hello” as you see us around campus.
