Theft on college campuses is often a crime of opportunity — somebody takes advantage of an unattended laptop, an unlocked door or a GPS visible in the window of a parked car.
The number of thefts on campus would decline if students were to take an extra moment to secure their belongings:
The University goes after those caught stealing. All students who were found responsible for theft last year were suspended. Nonstudents charged with theft are sent through the criminal justice system.
UA will continue to do its part to reduce the occurrence of thefts. Students can help their cause by taking that extra step to help secure their valuables.
