THEFTS ON CAMPUS
There have been weekly thefts on university campuses lately. For instance, valuable electronics and clothes have been stolen. University’s security officer wants to remind the students:
• When leaving your coat on the coat rack, don’t leave any money or valuables in the pockets. Also, do not leave your laptop on the table unattended.
• If you are the last one to leave a class, close and lock the doors and windows.
• In case of a theft, inform the university’s security officer. Many of the thefts can be solved because of the security camera system on campus.
