CT State Police Offer Tips to Elude Holiday Season ‘Porch Pirates’

Did you snag some deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Are they currently en route to your residence? CT State Police warn, don’t fall victim to criminals “shopping” on your front porch:

TRACK the package. This will give you an indication of when it will arrive so you can plan accordingly.

SIGNATURE required upon delivery will prevent your items from being left out in plain view.

ASK a friend, neighbor or family member to receive it for you if you know they’ll be home.

PICK UP at the shipping/receiving facility such as FedEx or UPS stores.

INSTRUCT the company to leave the package around the rear of your residence or underneath a porch.
