Laptop Theft Crime Prevention
This is a storyboard transcript to complement the laptop theft crime prevention video.
As students you will own something of value such as mobile phones, laptops or i-pods and mp3 players. But do you keep them safe?
Sometimes we make it too easy for thieves to steal our things because we become distracted and don’t follow basic safety advice.
If we leave something on view and leave a window or door open a thief walking past will take the opportunity to take it.
It only takes a couple of seconds before it’s too late. And remember, it’s not just the item you’ve lost but think of all the personal information or course work you could lose.
By following a few simple safety tips you can look after your belongings. Always close and lock a window before you go out and make sure cash and valuables cannot be seen from the outside.
Remember to take care of it before someone else does:
Lock windows and doors before you go out
Make sure valuables or cash can't be seen from outside
Keep keys out of reach of windows and doors
Close curtains and set light timers if you go out at night
Don’t let strangers into the building
