Electronic devices are valuable resources for students on the go. Our phones, tablets and laptops often contain personal information and data that is important to us, but they also have great value to criminals.
Registering your device can be an important step in preventing victimization. Registration stickers often act as a deterrent, making the item difficult to pawn or sell quickly. 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.
CU Boulder police and the Office of Information Technology offer a device registration program that is quick, easy and free. Owners can register their devices at the Office of Information Technology (OIT), 1045 18th Street, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
