Mass General’s size and openness makes it easier for individuals to be in areas where they should not be, and possibly committing illegal or unethical acts.

Here are some tips if you suspect inappropriate activity:

  • If you see someone in a restricted area or an area where they do not belong, ask if you can help them.
  • If you are uncomfortable doing this or you suspect unusual/suspicious activity, call Police and Security at your location to report as soon as possible.
  • Give a full description of the person (sex, height, weight, approximate age, race, distinguishing features, attire). Try to keep the individual in your work area while you call Police and Security.
  • Explain to the Police and Security dispatcher why this activity is suspicious. What did this person say or do that made you suspicious?
