During the holiday season, a majority of the community receives an increase in mail and packages. Below are some reminders to prevent package and mail theft.

Package Theft Prevention

• Always track your package deliveries so that you know when they are estimated to arrive at your home.
• Make sure that someone is home to receive the delivery, or that a trusted neighbor is available to receive the package on your behalf.
• Never leave your deliveries unattended in front of your door.
• If they are delivering a package, make sure they leave it in front of your door and not in front of the building entrance.
• Always require a signature when having items delivered.

Mail Theft Prevention

• Always use a U.S. Postal collection box or deposit your mail inside your local post office.
• Whether you have a home mailbox or use a post office box, you should always collect your mail on the day it is delivered. Never leave it in your mailbox overnight.
• Mail thieves look for bank statements and credit card bills, which can be used to create counterfeit checks or fake identifications.
• Thieves also look for personal checks enclosed in utility bills or other payments. Thieves take these stolen checks, remove the ink, and then fill out the blank check with their name and desired amount.
• Never send cash or coins through the mail.
• When reordering checks, have them sent to your bank.
• When you travel, ask a trusted friend or neighbor to pick up your mail or have the post office hold your mail.
• If you do not receive a check, bill, or other mail you are expecting, contact the issuing agency immediately.

We hope that everyone has a fun and safe holiday season!
