Crime Prevention Tip

If you share an office space, the security of your property could be in the hands of your officemates. If any of your officemates leave the office unsecured for any amount of time, then your property will be in jeopardy. Never leave your property unsecured inside your office. Take your property with you or lock it in a desk or filing cabinet. You should also mark your property with your state issued driver's license or identification card number. UTPD will loan you an electric engraver to mark your property. For more information on checking out an engraver contact the crime prevention unit at 232-9638 or 232-9634.
