Initial findings from HUPD's investigation of the threat emailed last night to hundreds of Harvard affiliates, while not complete, seem to indicate that the email originated overseas. As a result, it appears at this time that the threat may not be credible.
The HUPD is continuing to actively investigate the threatening email sent to some members of the community this afternoon. Detectives are coordinating their investigation with numerous law enforcement agencies following up upon several leads.
The Harvard University Police Department publishes the Annual Security Report, entitled “Playing it Safe,” which includes information about the HUPD, how to report a crime, HUPD’s crime prevention programs, substance abuse, sensitive crimes, emergency notifications, and other important information about security and HUPD services on campus. It also contains three years of statistics on reported campus or campus-related crimes.
