UT System Police Featured Officer of the Month


April 2015

Cynthia Loredo

UT Southwestern Medical Center


Detective Cynthia Loredo was born and raised in Dallas, TX.  She is the youngest of eight.  She loves to travel, when her schedule permits, and spend time with her family.  She enjoys participating in organized runs, going hiking and attending outdoor festivals.  She has run multiple half-marathons and is currently training to run a full-marathon.

Detective Loredo attended Dallas County Community College District where she earned an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice.  Subsequently, she transferred to UT Arlington to continue her education but instead began her law enforcement career.  In 2000, Detective Loredo attended the University of Texas System Police Academy.  While working as a Patrol Officer at the UT Arlington Police Department, she was a member of the Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Program and Bike Unit.  After three years, Detective Loredo ventured out of the UT Police System and ended up at the Cedar Hill Police Department. 

During her time with the Cedar Hill PD she obtained a variety of experiences and gained a vast amount of knowledge and skills. As she worked on patrol, she became interested in working as a Crime Scene Technician. She then pursued and earned a position as a technician within the unit. After several years of being with the CHPD, she sought to return to school but was unable due to her responsibilities.  She further decided that her best attempt in completing her education, she would need to make a change.  After much consideration, she returned to the UT System Police.

Detective Loredo has been with the UT Southwestern Medical Center Police Department since 2009 and is currently assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division.  Detective Loredo has continued her passion in crime scene investigations and has earned a certificate as a Forensic Technician.  She has also earned certificates as a Master Police Officer, Field Training Officer, and Basic Hostage Negotiator, to name a few.  Since working at UT Southwestern, Detective Loredo has been able to pursue her education and will be earning a BAAS from Midwestern State University in May 2015.  Since she has begun her law enforcement career, including working for a municipality and university campus setting, Detective Loredo has worked hard in becoming a well rounded officer.  She is grateful for the opportunities that she has been given throughout her career and seeks to share her experiences.  Detective Loredo is always willing to lead and assist the department in its time of need.
