Holiday Package Theft Prevention Tips

  • If possible, have your package delivered to a location where it can be received by a trusted person.

  • Ask neighbors who are home during the day to watch for deliveries.

  • Request that the shipper holds the package at their facility for pick up.

  • Track deliveries online and confirm delivery has occurred.

  • Insure valuable items.

  • Provide delivery instructions, so packages are left out of sight from the street.

  • Watch out for vehicles following delivery vans through neighborhoods.  Some thieves will simply shadow deliver drivers and go from house to house stealing newly delivered packages.

  • When sending packages take them to a post office or other shipping facility, rather than leaving them outside your home for pick up.  Let the person you are sending the package to know to expect the package.

If you see suspicious activity, or if your package is stolen call 410-268-4141 to report it to the police.
