Occasionally, community members report that they feel they were being followed. Community members should trust their instincts and react appropriately to these situations. That could mean changing direction, entering a public location (such as a restaurant or store), relocating to a well-lit or well-traveled location, traveling with a friend or group during late night hours, or calling the police from a phone or one of the BlueLight phones located throughout campus.
Trust your instincts; if something does not feel right, it probably is not. Do not hesitate to call the HUPD at 617-495-1212 or from one of the BlueLight phones if you feel unsafe. We strongly suggest that community members program the HUPD number into their phone and know the location of HUPD headquarters and substations on campus.
