Kresge Library to host Laptop Registration Program (December 3rd and 4th)
The Kresge Library is pleased to invite the University of Michigan’s Department of Public Safety (DPS) to the Ross School of Business to provide an in-person registration program for laptops and other electronic devices that you have. DPS offers a free Laptop, Personal Electronics and Bicycle Registration Program that is intended to “deter theft and avoid the consequences or assist in the recovery of stolen property.”
Representatives from the DPS will be available at the Kresge Library on Monday December 3rd and Tuesday December 4th from 1:30pm to 7:30pm (each day). They will be located near the entrance to Kresge on the 2nd floor. The process to register your laptop or electronic equipment takes only a minute or so to complete. Upon registering your laptop, personal electronics or even your bicycle, you'll receive two stickers to place on your device or bicycle. One sticker provides the DPS with tagging information to ensure that you will receive it back if it is recovered. The other sticker is a deterrent to let the would-be thief know that the product is registered in the primary database used by law enforcement in the United States and Canada. Additionally, if your property is found or recovered, the registration record will help DPS return your property to you.
If you are unable to make these times, you can still register your laptop, personal electronics or your bicycle by filling out the form found here:

We hope that this will help reduce the number of thefts that take place in public areas of the Ross School of Business and Kresge Library.
Additionally, it is good to know that we have a lost and found in the Kresge Library for a large number of items (ranging from travel mugs, to chargers, or personal electronics, etc.) that have been left at Kresge Library. If you are missing something that might have been left behind at Kresge, please stop by the Circulation Desk on the 2nd floor and ask. We might have had this the whole time!
