This week, Boston University Police Chief Thomas Robbins recommends that students take a minute to lock up before leaving their rooms. “The majority of thefts in dorm rooms and offices occur because the door is unlocked,” Robbins says. “Lock doors and windows whenever you leave, even if it is only for a minute.”
