Tip of the Week: Avoiding Theft of Packages
Theft of packages during the holiday seasons is an ongoing problem every year. Most commonly, thieves will actually follow delivery trucks and pick up packages just moments after they were delivered. Luckily though, technology has provided us with many ways to track our packages and know better when they will be delivered. Here are some tips to help you protect yourself from these thefts:
1. Whenever possible, try to schedule the delivery of your packages when you will be home.
2. Request that the packages need to be signed for at delivery time.
3. If you cannot be home for a delivery, see if a neighbor or family member can keep an eye out and pick up your packages for you.
4. Consider renting a mail box either at the post office, or a private company to have your packages safely delivered too for the holidays.
5. If you see someone in your neighborhood stealing packages from doorsteps, call the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station immediately and report this incident.
6. If you are employed as a delivery driver, be aware of anyone who may be following you, and call your local police department or Sheriff’s Station immediately if you notice anything suspicious.
