Joplin Police Department provides tips to prevent package theft

(From the Joplin Police Department)

Don't Let Your Cyber Monday Purchase Become your Terrible Thursday Theft!

-Request a specific delivery date and time from the shipper when you know you will be home

-Have packages delivered to a place where they can be received in person, such as a neighbor's house who is home during the day

-Request the shipper hold the package at its pick up facility so that you can pick it up in person

-Provide delivery instructions to the shipper so the package can be left at a safe location at your home not in view of the street

-If your employer will allow, have your packages delivered to your work

-Consider a surveillance camera at your home

-Report all suspicious persons or vehicles in your neighborhood to the Joplin Police Department
