Security notice for BC Mods community

Several thefts of laptop computers have been reported recently in Mods that were left unsecured. There are no suspects at this time. In an effort to increase the safety of the Mods, the Facilities Department will install an additional locking device on the back sliding door of each Mod. These new locks, when used properly, will help to keep the sliding doors securely locked. Students are asked to make sure all doors and windows are securely locked before departing for Spring Break. Contact BCPD at 617-552-4444 to report suspicious behavior, or Resident Director Matt Burke with any questions.
