With school back in session, many students bring laptops, cell phones and other valuable electronics with them. The Atlanta office of Signal 88 Security is sponsoring the Campus Crime Prevention program as part of an initiative to help college students and their parents take measures to proactively protect their personal belongings while away at school
Here are some tips for keeping your property safe:
- Always be aware of your surroundings, especially while your valuables are out in the open.
- Lock your car doors if something valuable is there. Hide anything valuable, if possible.
- Have a security lock on your electronics, if possible, and be aware of ways to track your device, whether by GPS or by serial number.
- Lock you dorm room while you are away, even if you are just taking a shower or going down the hall to visit a friend.
