Law enforcement warns about "porch pirates"

During the holiday season, the Door County Sheriff’s Office wants homeowners to be proactive in preventing the loss of shipped packages left at their front door.  An estimated 23 million Americans have reportedly had a package stolen from their front porch or mailbox.  Chief Deputy Pat McCarty says there are ways to safeguard any packages you might have ordered online.  He shares some options you have to eliminate being a victim of a porch pirate.

 

 

McCarty adds that you can have shipments sent to your place of work or ask a neighbor to take possession of it.  The United States Postal Service also offers a hold-for-pick-up option if you are going to be out of town.  Also, when shipping gifts to friends and family, give them a heads-up so they can be prepared for the delivery.
