A Message from the Chief of Police

I am excited and pleased to welcome you to the Police at MIT website. We believe this site adds value to the enhanced communication and sharing critical to the safety and security of the students, faculty, staff and guests of our great institution. Policing is as much about education as it is enforcement; to this end we are dedicated to working closely with our community as a clear statement of learning and growth. I encourage you to open the lines of communication and share with us your thoughts and insights on campus safety, crime prevention, and law enforcement.

Please be sure that you view the many resources offered by the department that can be viewed on these web pages.

I look forward to working with you to make MIT a safe campus.

John DiFava
Chief of Police
