MIT Police Safety Whistle Program
In recent months, the “Whistle Against AAPI Project” was started in reaction to the recent rise in attacks and harassment across the country against Asian Americans. In Quincy, Massachusetts, Quincy Asian Resources Inc. has been handing out whistles across Massachusetts, New York City and Los Angeles for Asian Americans to carry and use if they feel threatened in a situation. In support of this tremendous cause, the MIT Police department now has whistles available for our community members. The MIT Police whistles are equipped with a red flashlight and a compass. Whistles are available for pick up at the front desk of the MIT Police station located at building W89, 301 Vassar Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The MIT Parking and Transportation Office is tentatively scheduling a Bicycle Auction for the beginning of the Fall 2021 semester. Date TBA.
On April 18, 2013 the MIT Police lost a brother and a friend, Officer Sean Collier. In order to honor him, we set up a scholarship fund that would send one self-sponsored recruit through the Lowell Police Academy annually as a student officer. May 2018 will mark the fifth year of this great Scholarship.
Please stop by officer179.mit.edu to read messages and tributes in memory of Officer Collier.
