University Park remains a very safe community.

February 10, 2017

University Park remains a very safe place to live and work.  Again last year, the City’s most reported crime was Burglary of Motor Vehicle.  As in years past, the majority of the 143 incidents involved items that were taken because they were left in plain sight.  Wallets, purses, computer laptops and jewelry were common targets.

Safety precautions & resident involvement 

The police department continues to urge residents to lock their vehicles and place valuables in the trunk.  It’s also a good idea to keep all household doors locked, even when home.  UPPD appreciates all those who continue to quickly report suspicious activity.
