Tips to Prevent Package Thefts


The 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.

Please assist the police department in looking out for one another to make this holiday season joyous and safe for all!
