PACKAGE THEFT TIPS

  • Never have packages delivered to your home when you are away. Either have them re-routed to an alternate address, pick them up at the carrier office or ask a neighbor to pick them up for you. Those big boxes are a clear sign that no one is home and your purchases have been left unattended. Some thieves will follow delivery trucks to see where they make stops at.
  • Use tracking services with your shipping provider to see where your package is and when it has been delivered.
  • If you see a suspicious person in your neighborhood walking up to doors or following a delivery truck, call police.
  • Install porch cameras that will alert you to the presence of someone on your property or capture an image of the suspect.
