Education Dept. can track stolen electronic equipment
By The Star Staff
Education Department (DE) spokesman Alexis Ramos announced over the weekend that the agency can track electronic equipment that was assigned to students and subsequently reported stolen.
“The Office of Information Systems and Support for Teaching (OSIAT) reported that once the official complaint is received by the Puerto Rico Police, the company contracted by the DE through the purchases of this equipment activates a protocol for tracking it,” Ramos said in a written statement. “About three electronic devices have already been detected and recovered, including one in the United States.”
His statements were in reaction to a theft complaint filed Friday morning at Luis Llorens Torres residential complex in Santurce.
Itsalya Calderón said a tablet assigned to her daughter was stolen by an unknown person.
The device’s serial number is F9FDGPDAMF3M and its property number is DEIN20022225.
Agents attached to the Property Division of the San Juan Criminal Investigation Corps are continuing with the investigation.
