Preventing Package Theft: Safeguard Your Home from Porch Pirates
 
Loading Image...
 
PORCH PIRATE SEASON IS HERE
 
While kids are excitedly counting down the days to Christmas and the big visit from Santa Clause, there's someone else who may be planning a holiday visit to your home.
 
Porch Pirates - those who steal packages from your front porch after the Amazon or UPS drivers make a delivery - may be planning a surprise visit to your neighborhood.
 
Constable Mark Herman's Office advises to prepare for the possibility that they will visit your home, this can prevent you from becoming a victim.
 
Please follow the following safety tips:
-Always utilize package tracking to know when your package is out for delivery.
-Request a signature upon delivery whenever possible.
-If you are not home to sign your package, check for services that allow you to automatically redirect your delivery to a trusted neighbor’s address.
-Ask a neighbor to keep an eye out for your package.
-Take advantage of technology by installing a video doorbell or security camera to deter or capture photos of a thief.
-Invest in a porch lock box or mailbox sensor.
-Amazon, FedEx, UPS, and USPS offer lockers and post office boxes to keep your packages secure until you pick them up. Some of these services are free.
-Customize Delivery Times - So you receive can your packages near a desired time.
-Ship to the Store - If the retailer has the option, ship the package to the store, some retailers also offer contactless pickup.
-Leave Instructions - Leave instructions for your carrier, and ask them to place package in an area out of plain view.

It used to bother me that delivery people would just drop off the package without knocking or ringing the doorbell. I love having the Ring doorbell! I know when they come on the porch, even if I'm not home.
