Laptop Cop is the fastest way to get your lost or stolen computer back. While other solutions force you to
involve the police who are often too busy to assist with laptop recovery, the Laptop Cop recovery team can,
in addition to cooperating with the police, take direct control of your computer and monitor all of the thief's
computer activity. The recovery team then takes this recorded information, which often contains the thief's
full name, address, phone number, etc., and notifies the thief that they are being monitored.
