Preventing Theft

TCC's teen theft prevention campaign addresses teen identity theft and the theft of personal, portable property in schools.

Teens today are faced with theft in schools and the looming threat of identity theft as they become young adults. (About one-third of reported identity theft victims are between the ages of 18 and 29). The fact sheets below (available as PDF files) will help teens learn how to protect their identities and possessions. You can also download fact sheets for adults, who can help teach teens about theft.
