The Woodridge Police Department has issued an advisory regarding a significant rise in package thefts, particularly in multi-family housing areas across Chicagoland. To combat this trend, they’ve provided several key strategies for residents to protect their deliveries.

According to the Woodridge Police Department, these thefts have become increasingly prevalent. To safeguard packages, residents are encouraged to utilize package tracking services and consider the installation of a video doorbell, if permissible.
