A laptop is a valuable resource for students and workers. They often contain important personal information and data.
Registering your laptop can be an important step in preventing victimization. Registration stickers often act as a deterrent, making the item difficult to pawn or sell quickly. Information obtained during registration, such as make, model and serial number, also make it easier for police to identify recovered items and return them to their proper owners.
The Boulder Police Department offers a laptop computer registration program that is quick, easy and free at one of two registration sites. Owners must bring their laptops to the registration site so that the computer can be marked with a tamper-resistant sticker.
Laptop computer registration is available at the following locations:
The Public Safety Building, 1805 33rd St., 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday
Pearl Street Community Police Center, located on 16th Street, just south of Pearl Street, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
