Application to Locate Stolen Electronic Items

Northland Police are reminding owners of Apple electronic goods to activate an application that can help locate the items if they are stolen or go missing.

The application known as 'Find My iPhone' can be activated on iPhones, iPads and Apple laptops.

These devices are highly sought after by thieves and this application can be a useful tool to recover property.
It can help locate the device if it is lost or stolen by showing you on a map where your device is.

Police strongly recommend that people install and enable the application at the earliest opportunity after purchasing one these devices.
Easy to follow instructions are available on the Internet at the following website: http://www.apple.com/icloud/find-my-iphone.html

To prevent electronic items being stolen in the first place, Police would also like to remind people to lock their cars and houses when they go out and hide valuable items from view or take them with them.
