Friday, Nov 5: FREE Laptop Register & Engraving
Dear Public Safety Friends,
Columbia University Public Safety will be engraving & registering laptops, MP3 Players & other electronics in the lobby of Lerner Hall (ramp area) on Friday, November 5, 2010, between the hours of 11:00 am - 2:00 pm.
Property engraved will be registered with the NYPD & CU Public Safety from New York to California. Operation ID is FREE, EFFECTIVE, and a GREAT LOST & FOUND TOOL. It makes it difficult for a thief to sell engraved/registered property.
In case you missed it, a SIPA student reunited with his laptop thanks to Operation ID: http://www.columbia.edu/cu/publicsafety/CPNewsCurrent.pdf

If you have not down loaded the FREE PC & laptop recovery program, PC Phone Home or Mac Phone Home from the CUIT Web site, please go to: www.columbia.edu/acis/software/pcphonehome 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 to locate your laptop or PC anywhere in the world. This is not needed for download. Just record your computer's serial number / Mac Address and keep it in a safe location. Public Safety will need this information in the event of theft.
