#4 – Prevent Theft: Register Your Personal Property

Laptops, personal electronics, and bicycles are often easy targets for theft. Remember to secure your belongings at all times. Never leave laptops, phones, backpacks, wallets, or other valuables unattended for any length of time. Registering your personal property can act as an added deterrent to theft and assist in the recovery of your property in the event that it is stolen.
