Prevent Theft of Seasonal Package Deliveries and Car Prowls

As online shopping ramps up for the holidays, it’s important to decrease chances of potential package delivery theft.

One of the easier ways to avoid theft is to require a signature of delivery receipt, or ship packages to a location where someone will receive them, such as a workplace or a neighbor, friend, or relative who will be home. Some companies deliver to pick-up boxes at local retail locations.

When on vacation, notify the post office to stop mail and package delivery until you return home.

Car prowls can also be a problem in residential neighborhoods, retail districts, and shopping malls. Lock vehicles every time they are unattended, even if it’s just for a few minutes. Do not leave valuables or shopping bags in view. Instead, remove them from the car or store them in the trunk.

Park vehicles in highly visible, well-lit locations, preferably in closed and locked garages. When not parked in a garage, remove remote garage door openers to avoid home entry.

If you see suspicious behavior or have any concerns, call 911 to be connected with a Snoqualmie Police Officer.
