HUPD has their hands full with us Harvard students over the past few weeks. Between getting locked out of our rooms, our frequent late-night debauchery, and our pleas to spare us from the prying eyes of tourists, it seems that a lot's been going on around campus.As part of our Securitas Series, we've combed through recent HUPD logs and published some of the more colorful entries below.

February 1, 2014
Officers dispatched to a report of loud music. Officers arrived and instructed the occupant of apartment 613 to turn the music down and shut the window.
But, why weren’t we invited?

February 2, 2014

Giving literal meaning to “plowing through.”
