Reporting crime is everyone’s responsibility. If you see a crime being committed on or around campus or are a victim of a crime, report it immediately. TSU DPS is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week including holidays. When you report a crime, dispatch will send an available officer to your location.

You should report offenses that occur on the campus of Texas Southern University or one of our properties.

We are not responsible for dealing with crimes that are in progress, traffic collisions, or other incidents that would require an immediate response.

In those instances, you should dial 911 or call the TSU DPS dispatch center at 713-313-7000.

If the offense you are reporting occurred in another jurisdiction or on another campus, please contact the appropriate police or sheriff’s department.

The Texas Southern University Police Department is committed to taking action when its employees are negligent in their duties or are guilty of wrongdoing. Your complaint will be given a fair and thorough investigation.

Citizen complaints against Police Department employees (commissioned or civilian) are directed to:

General Services Building and ask for a Sergeant on duty or

Texas Southern University Police Department
Office of the Chief of Police
3100 Cleburne Street Houston, TX 77004 (713) 313-7001

Office hours are 8a.m. to 5p.m., Monday through Friday.

If the office is closed, you may still file a complaint with any Police Department supervisor, who will then forward your report.

How to File a Complaint against a Police Department Employee:

Submit your complaint in writing. You can use the Complaint Form in PDF format.

Texas law requires that all complaints against police officers be in writing and signed by the person making the complaint.

  • Complaints should be made within 30 days of the incident unless special circumstances exist.
  • The complaint should be filed by the person who was wronged. Other persons may give statements as witnesses.

The Process:

The Chief of Police will ensure that a thorough investigation of your complaint is conducted.

Just as citizens who are arrested must be told the charges against them, a police employee must be given a copy of the complaint before any disciplinary action is taken.

When the investigation is completed, you will be notified of the results and action taken.

Safety is our No.1 Priority. We continuously provide the student and faculty/staff with the knowledge and skills through the training video  to successfully respond to any dangerous situation.
