This Wednesday, there is an opportunity to register and tag your laptop:
Where: Stata Student Street (Bldg. 32, Ground level)
When: December 4, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Cost: $10 cash only or MIT Cash Object
Just as you might register a bike with the police, you can also register your laptop. Information Services & Technology partners with MIT Police to provide STOP tags for laptops. The tag is affixed to the device, has a unique number, and is registered with a world-wide database.
Sgt. Cheryl Vossmer of the MIT Police says that although a STOP tag is not software that can track a device via GPS or other means, it has been very effective at providing a way for lost or stolen laptops to be returned to their rightful owners.
