BPD Letter to College Students

The Boston Police Department has issued a letter to all college students regarding safety and security during the holidays. Take a minute to read it through and keep your belongings/living spaces safe!

Dear Students,

Most of you will be leaving shortly to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. Whether you are traveling near, or far, the majority of you will be leaving your living spaces vacant and unattended. I want to take this opportunity, as I often do, to offer a few safety tips and reminders so that you do not fall victim to a crime and that your personal possessions and space are protected.

As always, please make sure you secure your on and off campus housing units when you leave and lock the doors and windows. If you have air conditioners please remove them from the windows especially those where there is access to a fire escape. If they cannot be removed make sure they are securely fastened. Please take precautions in advance and if need be, contact your management company or landlord to make sure that the locks are in working order. Take any and all electronic devices of value home with you since these are often attractive targets… ie: iPods, game systems, and games.

Ask a trusted neighbor to keep an eye on things. Conversely, if you are going to be staying home, keep an eye on your neighborhood and call 911 if you see anything suspicious.

Additionally, should you come back to your residence prior to the start of classes please keep in mind that we will be monitoring the neighborhoods for loud and underage parties. Don’t forget that these are neighborhoods where people live and work.

Visit for more information and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

On behalf of the Boston Police Department relax and enjoy your break.


William B. Evans
Police Commissioner
