UPPD has been actively engaged with organizers and neighboring law enforcement agencies in conjunction with two planned marches scheduled to take place near the SMU campus tomorrow, Saturday, September 5.

The first march, organized and led by SMU students, is set to begin at 3 p.m. It will take place on the periphery of the SMU campus. The second march, organized by In Solidarity DFW is set for 5:30 p.m. tomorrow. It will involve surrounding streets. In both cases, organizers have been instructed to keep participants on the sidewalks and to walk in an orderly fashion. Both groups have been responsive throughout this week in our communications with them.

Motorists may encounter added pedestrian traffic near SMU’s Ford Stadium as a result of these two marches. Officers from UPPD, Highland Park Public Safety and the SMU Police Department will be on scene for both. If needed, additional advisories will be posted on the City’s various social media platforms.


Good Afternoon,
Just reaching out to let everyone know about increased police activity in the area of Lovers Lane and Central Expressway. The Dallas Police Department pursued a vehicle with robbery suspects inside and the vehicle crashed in the vicinity of University Park. The suspects fled from the crash location on foot, but all three (3) suspects are in custody at this time. There is no report of injuries to police or citizens and no reported damage at this time to any University Park property. One suspect was injured in the crash and a UPFD ambulance was dispatched to provide medical attention. Again, ALL SUSPECTS ARE IN CUSTODY!! Updates will be posted when/if necessary.


Good Afternoon. You may notice more activity than usual around the intersection of Preston Rd and Greenbrier Dr today. A company doing some roadwork on Preston Rd inadvertanly pierced a gas line that runs underneath the road. UP police and fire department personnel, along with a work crew from Atmos are currently on scene. A one block radius around this intersection has been cordoned off while Atmos makes repairs to the gas line. Please avoid this area if possible for the next few hours. An update will be posted when repairs have been made and the traffic way is open again.


UPPD has been notified about a locally-organized street corner gathering this afternoon from 2 to 5 p.m. at the intersection of Hillcrest and Lovers. Participants will stand in place on the northwest and northeast corners of the intersection and will not be blocking traffic .


A curfew is no longer in place in University Park and Highland Park. Please know that by staying home during this past week, you helped us successfully patrol our neighborhoods, storefronts, parks and alleys. We greatly appreciate the assistance and patience that you and family members demonstrated.

With our public safety partners, the City will continue to assess potential concerns and quickly communicate with you if additional actions are needed.

As always we thank you for your support.


Traffic Advisory: The City is aware of a possible peaceful protest this afternoon. Indications are the gathering is to take place near Northwest Highway and Preston Road from 2 to 5 p.m. Please be aware of potential traffic congestion. The City is closely monitoring.

Good Afternoon University Park. In continued coordination with the City of Dallas, the Mayors for the City of University Park and the Town of Highland Park have extended last night’s mandatory curfew for all residents. Curfew hours are from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. and will be in effect until 6 a.m. Wednesday, June 3. The curfew supports public safety efforts to maintain the peace and protect property. Adherence to the curfew order is simple: stay in your homes during curfew hours. Both the City and Town patrol personnel will remain highly visible in our neighborhoods. We also remain in close communication with our public safety partners across the region.

Unlike the City of Dallas, where the curfew includes only certain portions of the City, the curfew for the City of University Park and the Town of Highland Park involves all neighborhoods throughout both jurisdictions.

This order does not prohibit you from driving your car in University Park. For example, if you need to go to work, pick up someone at the airport or have an emergency you may drive your car to take care of this

City and Town residents can assist public safety efforts by taking these simple actions:

Park your vehicles in the garage
If vehicles are curbside or in the driveway, make sure you lock them
If vehicles are curbside, please remove all valuables from view
Even while home, lock your doors and activate alarm systems

If you see something suspicious, call 911. Likewise, if we have something to report we will use our various social media platforms and external communication to provide you with the latest information and advisories.

It has been asked if outside lights should be left on. That is a decision left up to each individual household, but if you have outside lighting it never hurts to have more light on a subject!

Thank you for your assistance and support.

Hello all you bicyclists, pedestrians and dog walkers out there. The UPPD would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that as more and more businesses continue to open up in and around University Park the motor vehicle traffic is beginning to pickup as well (Coincidence? You decide!). Bicycle riders - please be mindful of traffic laws while riding and do not ride bikes on the sidewalks. Pedestrians - please refrain from walking in the streets when sidewalks are available; and motorists please be aware of the increase in foot and bicycle traffic while driving. Regardless of whether you are walking, riding or driving please be courteous to each other while sharing the road - and don't forget to socially distance!! Hoping everyone is safe and well!


Recently a citizen reported that she attempted to contact Amazon regarding an issue with her Prime account. She advised that she "googled" a number for Amazon (800-674-2601) and when called was advised to download an APP to her laptop called "GO TO ASSIST". After downloading the APP the person called took control of her computer, opened her Amazon account and promptly ordered three gift cards. The citizen was able to cancel her credit card used which resulted in the gift card order being cancelled as well.

The citizen requested we alert others to the "GO TO ASSIST" application. The UPPD further reminds everyone to utilize official websites of companies to obtain contact information.

Hoping everyone is safe and well!!
