FAQ

Is there a place where I can store the money temporarily prior to the bank's opening?

My organization just had an event where we collected a substantial amount of money. 
The HUPD maintains a safe deposit box at the front desk of police headquarters at 1033 Massachusetts Avenue, sixth floor. The money can be brought in any time but can be retrieved only during normal business hours, Monday through Friday. Before coming in to retrieve your money, please call (49) 5-1786 to determine that someone is available to retrieve the money from the safe.

Does the Harvard University Police Department disseminate incident reports to the general public?

No. In the interest of maintaining community members' privacy, the HUPD does not disseminate incident reports to the general public. Because the HUPD is a private police agency, it is not required under the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' Public Record Law to disseminate police reports to the public. The University's Office of the General Counsel has authorized the HUPD to provide both theft and accident victims copies of incident reports in order to submit them to their insurance companies when making a claim for reimbursement.
