A COMPUTER tracking system has been launched by Cambridgeshire County Council to catch thieves who strike at the county's schools.

Education ICT Service, a business unit of Cambridgeshire County Council, has joined forces with Dell to install the tracking software in a bid to reduce the number of laptop thefts from schools.

Councillor John Powley, Cambridgeshire County Council's cabinet member for corporate services, said: "The theft of computers from schools holds up vital education for the county's schoolchildren. I hope this spells the end of computer theft from schools."

Computrace is a theft protection service that tracks, locates and recovers stolen computers.
