Technology Thefts From Educational Establishments In Northamptonshire Are At A High

Figures obtained by BBC Radio Northampton show technology thefts from educational establishments in Northamptonshire are at a high. In 2013 there were 252 thefts of technology; that’s an increase on both 2011 and 2012.

BBC Radio Northampton reporter Stephen Humphries went to Lodge Park Academy in Corby to find out if students there were aware of or concerned about the value of the mobile phones, tablet computers and the like, that they carry around with them.

Stuart talks to Alison Hayes, the Associate Principal at Lodge Park Academy in Corby, to Paul Watson, Headteacher at Preston Hedges Primary School, and to Laura Jones, Deputy Head of the Prevention and Community Protection Department at Northamptonshire Police.
