Prevent Porch Package Theft NOW!

We are days away from the holidays and the delivery of thousands of packages at homes in the area.
Thieves know this and are planning, right now, to rip you off!
Precinct One Constable Alan Rosen would like to remind you to consider these options in protecting yourself from porch package theft:

  • Use a lock box or locker
  • Consider delivering packages to your office instead of home
  • Install security cameras
  • Give instructions to package delivery service
Both UPS and FEDEX will allow you to designate a specific location other than the porch where a package can be left or you can instruct them to leave it with a neighbor
  • Sign up for alerts so you know when your package arrives
Some delivery services will tell you when a package has been delivered. That can help you realize It’s there so you can get it before someone else does.
  • Require a signature for delivery – if you can require it, that keeps the delivery person from leaving the package on the porch for someone to steal.
  • Check your front porch frequently if you are expecting a package
Taking a few simple steps can protect you from falling victim to these unscrupulous thieves.
