NYPD / CU Public Safety Operation ID Program Strikes Again
An I-phone that was lost on a NYC bus has been recovered and returned to a SIPA student, who enrolled in the NYPD / CU Public Safety Operation ID Program in 2010. A good samarian found her I-Phone on the bus and noticed the unique police ID number marked on the back. He immediately turned it over to the NYPD 28th Precint, which in turn contacted CU Public Safety.
Operation ID works and best of all it's FREE. Property marked & registered in this program is registered nationwide. For more information on Operation ID or to set up an appointment, please call our Crime Prevention office at 212-854-8513.
Public Safety Crime Prevention will continue to set up Operation ID property engraving tables throughout the month of February through May 2011 at various campus buildings. Dates, times, and locations will be e-mailed to the Columbia community.
