Holiday Package Safety

 

With the holiday season there are more packages and thieves who want to take advantage of the ripe pickings. Unless you have a ferocious guard dog at your door, we suggest following these simple tips...

DO

- Check your email alerts to know when packages have arrived and have someone bring them into the house as soon as possible.

- If no one is around to receive packages, have them delivered to a safer location, like a workplace.

- Check delivery dates to make sure packages don't arrive when you're away. If this can't be avoided, have a friend or neighbor hold them for you.

DON'T

-  Leave packages out all day or overnight.

- Leave outgoing mail in your mailbox, especially any bills with checks.

Thieves are getting more creative and some will arrive at your door with a food delivery bag, leaving with your belongings when they see no one is home. Be on the lookout for suspicious activity.
