HUPD & Safety


The Harvard Chan School is located in Boston, Massachusetts.  When one lives in a large city, they should make sure safety and awareness are among their top priorities.

The mission of the Harvard University Police Department is to maintain community peace, safety, and quality of life. The HUPD pursues this mission within the University context of free expression, rigorous inquiry, vast diversity, and pursuit of distinction. The HUPD honors these traditions and seeks success by means that are moral, constitutional, and respectful of individual rights and community interests.
