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. Other recommended measures include opting for Amazon locker deliveries, purchasing porch lockboxes, requiring signature on delivery, and investing in mailbox sensors.
Additionally, having packages delivered to one’s office, enlisting the help of a trusted neighbor, or arranging for delivery to the complex office through the property manager are viable options. These proactive steps can significantly reduce the risk of package thefts in the community.
