The Boston University
Police Department in conjunction with STOP, now offers laptop registration.
Laptop computers are tagged with an aluminum plate which aides in
theft deterrence as well as enabling the safe return of lost, stolen,
or misplaced laptops. The plate bears a unique ID Number, a message
and an 800 number to call for 24 hour ownership verification and
anti-theft information. If the plate is removed, an indelible tattoo
is etched into the cover of the laptop. All laptops are registered
in STOP's database. There is no cost for this service. For
departments wishing to register university owned equipment the charge
is $10.00 and includes the plate and lifetime registration.
For more information about the Laptop Registration program,
