DUNKIRK – Police in the City of Dunkirk are reminding residents this holiday season that the number of packages stolen from homes is higher than normal.
In a Twitter post Thursday morning, officials offered some tips to help prevent theft.
- Be sure to require a signature for delivery when purchasing.
- Have packages delivered to your work or another trusted person’s residence so someone can bring it inside.
- Install security cameras as a deterrence.
- Put insurance on the package if it is costly.
Police also remind those victims of package thefts to contact them with any complaints. If they see something suspicious they should contact their local law enforcement office.
