DataDot DNA: Protects and Identifies All of Your Personal Property

Magnified DataDotWhat Are Datadots?
DataDots identify your personal property in a way that makes it impossible for a thief to "clean". Each the size of a grain of sand, DataDots are laser etched with a unique PIN number. The owner may apply as few as one or as many as hundreds to their valuables. This DataDot has been magnified about 100 times. DataDots can be applied to:
  • Music Players
  • Laptops
  • Bicycles
  • Cell Phones
  • TVs and Stereos
  • CDs and DVDs
  • Cameras
  • Artwork
  • Automobile Accessories
  • Virtually Any Item You Want (We do not recommend using DataDots on textbooks, especially if you plan on selling them back.)
How Do They Reduce Theft?
The deterrence of theft is the ultimate protection for all of your personal property. DataDots help us to prove the true owner of your property and increase the chance of catching thieves. The "Protected by DataDot Technology" decals warn thieves to stay away from your property.Protected by DataDots Badge
Tracing and Recovering Your Property
The key to recovering your property is the recording of your property. A unique feature of the DataDot recovery system is the national registration database. This distinctive registry was designed specifically for the DataDot Identification and Security System. For a minimal cost, users can also download inventory software to track their property and unique PIN. The information is only accessible to law enforcement and investigators. We only have to locate a single DataDot to confirm the property's owner. We use a special blacklight and magnifier to find and read the unique police traceable identifiers on the DataDots. If your DataDot protected property is stolen, be sure to give us your PIN when you make the police report.

Where Can You Get DataDots?
DataDot kits are available in the University Bookstore.

The University Police Department provides assistance with planning security resources for events.  It is the desire of the Department to work in collaboration with event sponsors and promoters in order to assure that our visitors to campus special events are cared for.


Requests for special event security must be submitted in writing to the Chief of Police a minimum of 21 days prior to date of event.

Staffing expenses associated with events may be charged back to the sponsoring individual or department. University Police Department charge back costs are based upon staffing, hours and equipment proposed for the event. Additional charges due to circumstances or incidents related to event, requiring additional University Police Department attention may affect final recharge total.

Twenty-four hour cancellation notice to the University Police Department is required prior to event staffing reporting times in order to prevent a three-hour minimum staff callback recharge for each staff assignment.

The following form has been created to assist sponsors and promoters with requesting security services for campus events.  Assistance may be requested by completing the on-line Event Planning/Assistance Form below or contacting the University Police Department Offices located at Library Room 1063 or by calling (510)885-3791.
