Captain David Owen

UNT Police Department

UNT Police Department suffered a significant loss this week.


Captain David Owen, who led the Field Services unit overseeing patrol officers at the University of North Texas, lost his courageous battle with cancer.


Previously, he was in charge of the Support Services Unit and played a huge role in the re-accreditation process every four years. 


Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, their children and his work family.


Backing The Blue – Denton is accepting donations on behalf of the Owen family.  All donations will be paid to the family.  

We've got their six.
