Reporting Crimes or Emergencies

Berklee students, faculty, staff, and guests are encouraged to promptly and accurately report all crimes, emergencies, and suspicious activity to Berklee Public Safety at 617 747-2333 (extension 2333 on campus).  The report can also be made directly in person to any Berklee personnel, including the Control Center located in the basement of 155 Massachusetts Avenue. Alternately, Boston Police Department (BPD) can be called at 911 or 617 343-4911, especially if the incident is off campus.   

Additionally, Public Safety provides 24-hour emergency call boxes for the Berklee community. These boxes are strategically placed throughout the campus and have blue lights on the unit.  When activated, the call box connects to the Public Safety control center, and the appropriate response to the situation will be dispatched. Public Safety will investigate all incidents. When it is deemed appropriate, reports are forwarded to the applicable department at Berklee for review and potential action. Public Safety encourages community members to contact the Boston Police Department, or other authorities, when necessary, and will also contact said authorities when their assistance is needed.
