Children First: protecting electronic gadgets at school

Posted:

As your college student stocks up on all the electronic necessities How can you make sure those expensive gadgets don't fall into the wrong hands?

There are ways to protect your laptop, a Kindle, and even iPod.

A laptop safe attaches to furniture.  Or if you want a more portable option, the personal portable vault could be for you. Both items are padlocked.

Expensive items are always a target for thieves, and police say even more so on a college campus.  "People know it's a college campus and if they're looking for laptops to steal or electronics, what's a better place to go to look for those things," explained RCPD Detective Sgt. Tom Senesac.

For laptops and smart phones, there is software that includes GPS locators to help you find your device in case it's stolen.  But police say the best deterrent is simply to be extra careful with your valuables.
