If you have any information, please notify the UH Manoa Department of Public Safety (DPS) at
(808) 956-6911 or the Honolulu Police Department (HPD) at 9-1-1.

Meanwhile DPS recommends:

  • Always ensure that your storage shed or room is locked, even if
    you only plan to be away for a few minutes.  Never leave an
    unlocked storage area unattended.
  • Install a locking bar to span the front of your storage shed,
    ensuring that it spans all doors on the shed.  There are many
    locking bar options which are easy to install and can be found
    online.
  • If your shed or storage area has windows with a screen or
    jealousies, consider installing a secure window that cannot easily
    be cut or removed.
  • Use a high-quality lock that cannot easily be compromised by
    bolt cutters.
  • Consider installing security cameras or alarms on any storage
    areas, especially if they are not visited or seen every day.
  • Regularly check on storage areas.
  • If multiple people have access to a storage room or unit, ensure
    that everyone follows the same protocols for keeping the area
    secure.
  • Keep an inventory of items in the storage unit and be sure to
    update the list each time something is removed or replaced.
  • Keep serial numbers of any higher-priced items or equipment, to
    ensure that property can be returned to you if recovered.
  • Avoid storing expensive items in an outdoor storage shed.  If possible,
    store these items indoors in a secured room.
