Preventing Holiday Package Theft

Here's a timely tip from Crime Prevention Manager Stephanie Reynolds from City of Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI) Crime Prevention:

Package theft typically increases during the holidays. To prevent it, choose a safer delivery option:
• Arrange to pick up packages at the carrier or retail establishment.
• Require a signature on deliveries.
• Opt for deliveries to lockers or other secured locations where possible.
• Ship your package to a location where someone you trust will be available to receive it.

If it is offered, track the status of your delivery by email, text, or other alert. If you are going on vacation, make sure that no shipments will be delivered while you are away.

Although camera surveillance is beneficial to your home’s overall security, it will not deter package thieves.

Please be alert and report crime and suspicious activity in your neighborhood such as someone stealing a package or trailing a delivery truck by bike or car. For immediate threats to life or property or crimes in progress, call 9-1-1. For non-immediate threats occurring in Portland, call the police non-emergency number at 503-823-3333.
