    Maybe its time for the department of education, UDOT, and state government start looking at building budgets and start using class C alternative materials that is cheaper and less of an incentive to theft.

    Copper has become a precious metal and the use of it in public schools and buildings should be considered for a compromise material like plastic that is used in the majority of most corporate construction. Government is so used to luxury its time they put luxury at the bottom of their list and start looking at value engineering and alternatives to luxury and $100,000 desks.

    If the state and police can't or wont track down theses thefts I don't see how they can expect the public to have any knowledge or help for poor security. As long as they can be traded and sold as junk as recycling materials to junk yards, this request is a waste of time. Most likely they are all inside jobs and not random drive by opportunities.

    Like the police tell victims of home theft, mark your property, theft is not a concern of police. Theft is considered neglect by owner for not insuring their property.
