With Cyber Monday's orders getting ready to ship, how do you protect those package deliveries from thieves? Former SLCPD Chief Chris Burbank gives us a few options to minimize risk and bond together as neighbors. *** Mail order has become a huge business. We get lots of deliveries. People are sending us things, and we are ordering things. One theft that happens often during the holiday season is package theft. The nice thing about the computerized system and everything that exists in most mail order businesses—they can tell you exactly when that package is going to be delivered. If you are not going to be home, make arrangements for that package to be delivered to a neighbor’s house. Have a neighbor come pick it up—someone that you trust. Have it delivered to the back door in some circumstances. One of the things that we most often miss out on is getting to know your neighbors. When you can trust your neighbors, when your neighbors watch your house, you watch their house—on both sides of your home. You know the neighbors really well, those three homes watch out for each other. Boy, we would be very safe. It’s about reducing our exposure to risk. Minimize the chances that that package will be stolen. You can reduce the chance that you will lose that package before Christmas.
