In addition to deploying location-tracked “bait” to trap package thieves and other criminals, the Citrus Heights Police Department is advising the public of eight ways to reduce the chance of having a package stolen this holiday season.

In a social media post following Thanksgiving police offered the following tips for preventing package theft:

  1. Track packages and sign up for alerts.
  2. Have packages delivered to a lockbox or utilize ship-to-store.
  3. Require signature for delivery.
  4. Consider an alternate shipping address.
  5. Have a trusted neighbor pick up your package if you’re not home.
  6. Use security cameras.
  7. Be a good neighbor and look out for one another.
  8. Call police to report crime or suspicious activity.
