Police help to pay for anti-theft software for laptops
Nottinghamshire Police are to provide funds for people who live in burglary hotspots to install theft-recovery software on their laptops.
The police force is paying for licences for Absolute Software's ComputraceOne, which connects the company's monitoring centre to a machine every 24 hours, and every 15 minutes if it is reported stolen. This should enable the police to locate any stolen laptops that go online.
In 2007, there were 665 burglaries in the city in which laptops were stolen. Students are often victims of this type of crime and can lose valuable coursework as a result.
