Each month we highlight an online mailing list or website. Frequently the link is associated with UNT.
Lost and Found at UNT has re-located to Facebook. At least virtually. As was reported by InHouse on March 11, "the UNT Police Department, in cooperation with Trace, the world’s leading online database of lost and stolen valuables, has launched the nation’s first student-oriented crime prevention application in Facebook, the hugely popular social networking web site." The North Texas Daily also covered this story on March 12,
As the introductory page from Trace says, "Tell your friend, campus police and all of FaceBook if your stuff disappears." There is also a way to use MyThings.com to save important item information before your things are stolen. Parents might be particularly interested in this aspect of the service. Furthermore, as the InHouse article states, "by searching Trace.com, the public can both report and avoid unknowingly purchasing stolen property, making it more difficult for criminals to move stolen items, and help local law enforcement deter crime. Furthermore, by creating secure, anonymous online inventories of belongings, UNT students can proactively protect property."
