If you’re like most of us, you probably take the security of your office (and other places) for granted. PWB had a break-in over a recent weekend. Through some good luck, nothing of much value was taken – a couple of decade-old laptops and $15 in petty cash. But it was a good reminder.
It’s not uncommon for people’s personal property – an iPod here, a digital camera there – to be out on our desks. Fortunately, it was a weekend and none were. And our hard-working staff with laptops had taken them all home.
The Ann Arbor police department has been chasing this guy for some time. He’s broken into several companies on the south side of town over the past year (including others in our building on the same day). But, so far no luck in apprehending him.
This incident was a good reminder for us – periodically take time to have a look around your office and stow your valuables. You never know, and a few moments could prevent a loss.
