Free Laptop & Property Engraving on Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Dear Public Safety Friends,

Public Safety Crime Prevention will be engraving and registering laptops and other electronics with the NYPD & CU Public Safety on Wednesday, January 20, 2010, from the hours of 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. This will be held at the Law School's 1st floor, in front of room 103.

A unique Police number is engraved on the property and will be registered with the NYPD & CU from New York to California including Alaska & Hawaii.

This is a FREE and very effective program that has helped in the recovery of lost or stolen property. In a most recent recovery, the NYPD arrested an individual who was in possession of stolen property belonging to one of our Doctors at the Medical Center, thanks to our Operation ID Program.

Also available will be:

  • FREE NYPD Blue Light program: same as above except invisible ink is used & can be viewed with a special police light. Excellent for Cell Phones!
  • Kensington Ultra Laptop Locks: Discounted/special pricing for Columbia University only.
  • PC or Mac Phone Home Stolen Laptop recovery program. Download it from the CUIT Web site. FREE for students, faculty, and staff. 

Not needed for down load: Note down your computer's serial number or Mac Address, keep it in a safe location. In the event of a theft, this will help speed up the recovery process. The link above will show you how to get this information.

For more information please call Public Safety at (212) 854-8513.

Hope you can make it.

Thank you,
