Online Personal Property Registration
Students may register their personal property online with the UCF Police Department. Items such as computers, bikes, ipods, cameras, and other valuables can be entered. Why would you want to do this? Theft is the number one crime that affects college students across America. Don't think it can't happen to you!
If you report theft of your property and you don't have the information that law enforcement needs to help you, the odds on getting your property back diminish. If you use the online property registration program that creates a description of your property and we get your serial number, the odds on the recovery is much higher.
The police enter your serial number into the national and state databases. Law enforcement agencies are now able to retrieve the information so that stolen item may be recovered and returned to you. The information is kept for 4 years and is kept confidential an only accessible to law enforcement officers. This program is available 24 hours a day through out the year and just takes minutes to do.
For students who participate in the LINK LOOT program from the First Year Experience Office, you can earn 500 points by registering your property. It can be a radio, TV, computer, cell phone, anything with a serial number, you can earn a one time 500 points by registering.
