What if my Laptop is Stolen?
Step 1 - File a Police Report
Each person reporting a theft or missing and presumed stolen laptop must file a police report within three business days in the jurisdiction in which the laptop is alleged to have been lost or stolen.
The police report must include the laptop's:
- model number
- manufacturer’s serial number
Step 2 - Submit the Police Report to LTU
It is the responsibility of the user/victim to provide a copy of the police report to LTU Business Services in the One-Stop Center. LTU will not obtain copies of the police reports filed by users/victims. LTU Business Services will forward copies of the filed police reports to the Help Desk and Campus Safety.
Step 3 - Meet with Campus Safety and Security Director
Any person reporting a stolen laptop must meet with the Director of Campus Safety and Security to discuss the details of the incident as reported to the police. A new laptop may not be obtained until this meeting has taken place.
Step 4 - Obtain a Replacement Laptop
- The $500 security deposit on account will be retained by the University when a laptop is stolen and all steps above are followed.
- If no police report is filed, the full cost of the laptop, currently $3000.00, will be charged to the account.
- To obtain another laptop, a $500 security deposit must be on account, and paid at the One-Stop Center.
