Prevent Delivery Package Theft

Post Date:10/29/2018 1:25 PM



  • Have packages delivered to where you ARE, not where you AREN’T. For example, consider having packages delivered to your place of employment.


  • Use tracking numbers and delivery notifications.


  • Ask family members, trusted neighbors, and friends to accept deliveries on your behalf.


  • Request packages to be placed in less conspicuous places, such as a side door or behind a planter.


  • Many delivery companies allow you to request a delivery time or time frame schedule packages when someone is home.


  • Install a small security camera at your front door.


  • Request a signature on deliveries if possible.


  • Some companies offer a locker service for packages to be held at the delivery center for pick-up.  Utilize this program if you can’t have someone receive the package personally.


  • Keep an eye out for suspicious vehicles and people in your neighborhood.  Report suspicious activity to the COLUMBIA COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE at 706-541-2800.
