Laptop security advice from Limerick Gardaí

TREAT your laptop like cash. That was the advice this week from the Limerick Garda Crime Prevention Office.

“Along with cash, laptops and tablets are the most common items taken in burglaries and from cars that are broken into or left unlocked,” Garda John Finnerty explained.

“Consider carrying your laptop in something less obvious than a laptop case. A laptop case is easily identified by criminals and as such are targeted by them.

You wouldn’t leave a large amount of cash unattended in a public place or in the back of your car, so keep a watchful eye on your laptop,” Garda Finnerty advised.
