Personal Property Registration
Register personal property to help recover items that get lost, stolen or misplaced.
Students, faculty and staff can register property with the TUPD to aid recovery if something gets lost, stolen or misplaced. Personal property registration is free and available 24/7. When registering, you’ll provide descriptions and serial numbers of your property. That information will be entered into a national database that law enforcement agencies use to recover items, confirm ownership and return them to their owners. The information is confidential and only accessible to law enforcement officers.
