Come next week to Lobby 10 to register and tag your laptop. This is the last opportunity to do so this semester!
Where: Lobby of Building 10

How to pay: $10 cash (no cards) or MIT Cost Object
Just as you might register a bike with the police, you can also register your laptop. Information Systems & Technology partners with MIT Police to provide STOP (Security Tracking of Office Property) tags for laptops. The tag is affixed to the device, has a unique number, and is registered with a world-wide database.
Capt. 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.
Read recovery stories here of laptops with STOP tags.
Laptop tagging and registration takes a break during the summer and we will post the next laptop tagging session when available. Laptop registration at MIT.
