4 tips for preventing parcel theft from the Alhambra Police Department

If you are shopping online for the holidays and are expecting packages in the mail, check out these tips for preventing parcel theft from the Alhambra Police Department.

The number of parcel thefts is growing nationwide as more thieves are stealing packages from doors and porches, Alhambra PD posted Wednesday on FacebookHere are some ways to help keep your holidays theft-free:

  1. If you see anyone following a UPS, FedEx, U.S. Postal Service, or other delivery truck, call 911 immediately. 
  2. If possible, consider having packages, especially those of considerable value, delivered to a location where someone can retrieve it.
  3. Make arrangements with a neighbor who can watch for the delivery and retrieve the package.
  4. Consider mandating that packages, especially those of considerable value, be signed for by someone at your home. This may prevent them from being left on your porch and stolen. 

Alhambra PD also reminded residents Wednesday to report suspicious behavior. "If you see it, DON'T IGNORE IT – REPORT IT!" the agency posted. "A community that partners together helps keep the community safer!"
