Want to Stop Theft? There's an App for That
GAINESVILLE - As students move onto campus the University of Florida Police Department is hoping valuables don't move into the hands of thieves.
They have a program that students can download called Front Page and when installed the user can track if their device has been taken.
And officers say students are good trackers themselves.
Officer Wayne Clark, UF Police Department: "we just ask if you see something suspicious please give local law enforcement a call and if you are on campus of course call upd and we will come and check out if a criminal activity took place or not."
There are also apps you can download if you are not a student.
One is called "Prey" and an alarm sounds if you discover its been taken.
