Security of Equipment

Small office machines such as typewriters, calculators, tape recorders, etc., are more susceptible to theft than other types of equipment. Departments are reminded that security devices are available to help prevent thefts of some of these items. Keys to these security devices must be properly protected. Where practical, unsecured small items should be placed in locked cabinets at the end of each working day. During absences from the office, doors should be closed and locked. It is the ultimate responsibility of the department head to insure adequate security measures are in place.

    Stop Tags are theft deterrent labels used nationally by government and civil institutions. It is the product of choice at Morgan State University for computers, copiers, and other pilferable equipment. Persons interested in the STOP Tag product and how it works should contact the Property Control Department at extension 3114.
