Tips to Deter Holiday Package Theft

Thursday, December 4, 2014

It's the peak season for holiday deliveries, and package thieves are on the prowl.

Here’s some tips for preventing theft of your holiday packages:

·         Choose a shipping option so you can sign for delivery.

·         Request friends and relatives sending you a package to do the same and ask for a tracking number.

·          Keep an eye on the package's delivery status. Sign up for email or text alerts.

·         Ship the package to another location such as your office if you won't be home to receive it.

·          Leave special instructions on where to deliver packages (behind bushes, side or back patio).

·         Choose delivery pickup.

·          Insure your packages.

·         Watch for strangers approaching your neighbor’s front door where packages have been left.

To report suspicious activity or vehicles, call the San Diego County Sheriff's Department at (858) 565‐5200. If your package is stolen, report the theft to the Sheriff's Department and the business where your order originated.
