Please call 617-495-1796 prior to coming to HUPD headquarters at 1033 Massachusetts Avenue to ensure that a detective is available to print you. The cost of the service is $10 per card or $20 for two or more cards. The fee may be paid by cash or check (made out to Harvard University Police Department).
