Electronic devices are valuable resources for students and workers on the go. Our phones, tablets, and laptops often contain personal information and data that is important to us. Unfortunately, they also have great value to thieves and burglars.

Information obtained during registration such as make, model, and serial number also make it easier for police to identify recovered items and return them to their proper owners.
