  1. Lucille, Former Resident Says:

    When the West U Police stop suspicious vehicles do they call for backup before doing so? For many years, West U and the other small cities were considered islands in the middle of crime-plagued Houston. The crime reports indicate that the idea that because the small city has its own police it is safer than Houston, no longer exists. For some reason West U doesn’t seem as crime-free as it used to be. I have always felt that there should be two officers per police cars and if this is not feasible, at least a call for a visible backup should be considered.
