The Hudson Police Department are offering tips to help you prevent package theft during the holiday season. Our police suggest several proactive steps you can take to help protect yourself from being a victim.
Invest in a home security camera. Hudson Police detectives say porch pirates tend to avoid cameras.
Get to know your neighbors. They can keep an eye out for your package or even have it delivered to their home.
Try to be home for deliveries. When at all possible, schedule a delivery time when someone is home to receive your order.
Consider an Amazon locker. If you shop on Amazon, think about picking up your package from their secure lockers. Learn more.
Keep packages out of sight when shopping. If you're going from the store to your vehicle, try not to make multiple trips because you never know who might be watching. If you must leave packages in your car, leave them somewhere secure such as the trunk or a covered portion of your SUV.
As always, if you seeing anything suspicious, give HPD a call at (330) 342-1800.
