It’s package theft season


Ellis County Sheriff’s Office
Neighbors,
We’re entering the biggest shopping season of the year. Unfortunately this is also prime season for package thieves. The Ellis County Sheriff’s Office reminds you as you’re making online purchases over the next few weeks, follow these tips to avoid becoming the victim of package theft.

1. Sign up for delivery alerts so you know when your delivery is scheduled – and when the package has been delivered.
2. If you’re not able to be home when a package will be delivered, ask a trusted neighbor to hold it for you.
3. If possible, require a signature for all deliveries.
4. Consider shipping packages to your place of work or use the ship to store option.
5. Be a good neighbor! If you see a package on your neighbor’s doorstep, reach out and ask if they would like you to hold it until they are home.
