Reminder: Join the Fun @ National Night Out Oct. 4

The University of Houston-Downtown Police Department (UHDPD) is hosting the 2022 National Night Out from 5 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 4, on the South Deck of UHD’s One Main Complex, One Main Street. 

The goal of the national event, held annually on the first Tuesday of October, is to promote police-community partnerships. UHDPD also hopes to promote community support and raise awareness of resources available to UHD and Houston communities. 

State Representative Christina Morales will join the UHD campus community for food, games, and activities. The event will feature video games for the kids, a dunking booth, and music. UHDPD will also bring their “shoot / no shoot” simulator to help attendees learn more about how police officers are trained to respond in critical moments on the job. 

Questions should be directed to UHDPD Lieutenant Trinity Delafance at 713-221-8446 or delafancet@uhd.edu
