Absolute Safe Schools
Mobile devices are providing new learning opportunities for schools and students. But with new opportunity comes risk. Theft of these devices is on the rise and some students are becoming targets of crime.
Absolute Safe Schools is an integrated program that works in conjunction with existing Absolute Software theft recovery technology. Overseen by our Absolute Investigations and Recovery Services team, Absolute Safe Schools can help keep students and school environments safe.

How It Works
Absolute Safe Schools provides a safe environment and promotes student and staff security through three simple steps.
Teach students and staff how to avoid scenarios where they may be at risk, including best practices and safe actions.
Create a safer environment by providing on-site promotional material that clearly designates “Protected Campus” status for each school setting, including anti-theft device stickers, on-site signage, and community outreach.
A proven rapid response to theft and a managed process for the return of found devices.
How We Work with Law Enforcement
The Absolute Investigations and Recovery Services team assists law enforcement professionals in securing search warrants and making arrests. Once we know a device is missing, the Investigative Services Team launches an investigation. Leveraging the team’s proven rapid response and with device data collected using Absolute Computrace technology, the investigator will work closely with local police to get the stolen device back.

Top 9 Tips for Keeping Your School Device Safe and Secure
Keep your device out of sight.
When you’re not in the classroom, keep your device in your book bag or somewhere out of sight. If you store the device in your locker, make sure it is locked.
Don’t tell others that you have a device.
If you are allowed to take your device home, don’t advertise to others you have a device.
Never leave your device unattended.
Don’t leave your device unattended at school or in public, even to use the bathroom. Just because it’s out of sight in your book bag doesn’t mean it’s safe. A thief only needs a few seconds to steal your device.
Don’t lend your device to anyone.
Never loan your device to anyone without permission from a teacher or school administrator. Other people may not treat the device with the same care and respect as you do.
Don’t use your device where it could be damaged.
Water, beverage, and even food spills can harm your device.
Don’t leave your device in a car.
If you have to, keep it out of sight or locked in the trunk.
Don’t use your device in public places.
Never use your device on the bus, at a bus stop or other public locations where a thief may see it.
Pay attention to your surroundings.
Stay alert. Thieves target people that aren’t paying attention.
Always return your device.
If you are required to turn in your device, never leave it on a cart or on a teacher’s desk. Always place it in the hands of a teacher or a school administrator.
