UAPD holds car checks to increase travel safety for students, faculty and staff.

The U of A Police Department is taking extra steps to help keep students, faculty and staff safe when they travel off campus for the holidays. UAPD officers will conduct a basic check of lighting, fluids, tires, etc. from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 8, at 155 N. Razorback Rd. (Lot 47S).

All types of vehicles are welcome. UAPD officers are not licensed mechanics and are evaluating the safety of vehicles based on a visual inspection.

This service is offered at no charge; however, UAPD personnel encourage you to bring canned or nonperishable food items to donate to the Jane B. Gearhart Full Circle Food Pantry.

About UAPD: The University of Arkansas Police Department, in partnership with the community we serve, is dedicated to protecting and serving the future of Arkansas and beyond by embracing the philosophy of community policing and promoting a safe and secure environment through excellence, initiative and integrity.
