Free NYPD & CU Property Engraving and Registration - Feb. 16 at Studebaker

Dear Public Safety Friends,

CU Public Safety will be engraving & registering laptops, MP3 Players, I-pads, Kindles, & other electronics at the Studebaker Building (615 West 131 Street) on Wednesday, February 16, 2011, between the hours of 12:00--2:00 p.m. The engraving and registry will take place on the 3rd floor in conference room 363. 

Engraved properties will be registered with the NYPD & CU Public Safety from New York to California. Operation ID is FREE, EFFECTIVE, A GREAT LOST & FOUND TOOL, and makes it difficult for a thief to sell engraved/registered property. 

If you have not downloaded the FREE PC & laptop recovery program--PC Phone Home or Mac Phone Home--from the CUIT website, please go to and follow the instructions on this link for PC or Mac Phone Home. This program is FREE for students, faculty, staff only and will assist the Police & Public Safety in locating your laptop or PC anywhere in the world. Not needed for download, record your computer's serial number / Mac Address & keep it in a safe location, Public Safety will need this information in the event of theft.

Need a laptop lock? Discount Kensington Ultra laptop Locks will be available at $25 each.

NYPD Blue light program will also be available for FREE (invisible ink) and is great for cell phones.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call CU Crime Prevention at 212-854-8513.

Help us break last year's record! Hope to see you there.
