Tips to Prevent Package TheftsThe Wyomissing Police Department would like our residents to be aware that we have received a report of delivered packages left on a porch that were opened. Though there was no theft of merchandise, during this upcoming holiday season and the COVID- 19 pandemic, we ask all to be vigilant in their neighborhoods. The police department suggests the following to prevent these thefts that can spoil the upcoming holiday season:
- Install security cameras,
- Use a third party mail location,
- Upgrade your mailbox area to allow for packages,
- Network with neighbors to assist in receiving packages,
- Add a smart doorbell
- Pick up packages in person or have them delivered when you are home, or
- Have it delivered to a work address.
