UHDPS Police Officers Go Above and Beyond
Every day University of Houston Police Officers work hard to protect and serve; keeping the
community safe and secure is our number one priority. Be it big or small we come to the rescue.
Thursday Officer Jocelyn Ballard came to the rescue for a little member of our community.
Officer Ballard witnessed a set of young ducklings making their first trek across campus. Being
their first day to leave the nest, one by one they launched from the nest, falling to the ground.
Unfortunately, one little guy got away from the rest of the group and waddled under the Parking
Enforcement Building. Police Officer Jocelyn Ballard climbed under the trailer and was able to
catch the little duckling and reunite it with the rest of its siblings.
Police Officers save the day, each and every day!
