UHD Police in Our Community

On July 25, Lt. Frederick Varela of the University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) Police Department met with community youths and their families at the Ice Cream With An Officer event at McDonald's (2515 Fulton Street), just north of campus. The event was part of UHD's community policing initiative to build a bridge of unity and cooperation with surrounding communities. Also in attendance were officers from Houston and Metro police departments.

Varela brought UHD swag and stickers while McDonald’s also provided tickets for everyone to receive a free ice cream cone.

"I look forward in representing not only Texas law enforcement again, but the University of Houston-Downtown community," said Varela.
