You play a role in reducing thefts
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:
- In the library, if you are going to step away from your table, take your laptop with you.
- Lock the door to your dorm room, even if you are running down the hall for a minute.
- In your car, tuck items of value out of sight. Yes, this includes the rack that holds your GPS. A thief may see the rack and assume that the GPS is in the car.
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.
