Register Your Laptop, Personal Electronics or Bicycle
Laptops, personal electronics and bicycles are often targets for theft. Remember to secure your belongings at all times. Don’t leave laptops, phones, backpacks, wallets and other valuables unattended—not even for a minute. As an added deterrent, register your laptops, personal electronics and bicycles—it’s quick and easy to do online.
Help Protect our Home
Everyone can, and should, contribute to the safety of our campus community. What can you do to help? If you see something, say something—promptly report crimes and suspicious behavior. Public safety is everyone’s responsibility. Find out more information on what to report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
