Now That My Property Is Marked, What Else Can I Do?
As stated elsewhere in this article, no one is immune to theft. But by
participating in the Identification Program you have lessened the
possibility of suffering a burglary. You can do more if you will:
- Report promptly any loss, theft, or damage of your property to
the University Police Department.
- Report promptly any unusual activities, suspicious persons or
vehicles, and criminal activity to the University Police Department.
- Keep your apartment or living unit doors locked at all times and
make certain they are locked whenever you leave.
- Keep valuables stored as securely as possible. Articles plainly
visible or left unattended in vehicles or rooms are an open
invitation to thieves and vandals.
