Postal Theft

Staffordshire Police say here are some useful tips to reduce the risk of doorstep parcel theft and to help prevent your parcel from being stolen.

Track your parcel to ensure you or someone else is at home for the delivery.

Install a video doorbell, this can be connected to your mobile so you will be notified immediately of any delivery, and is easier to install than a full CCTV system.

Install a security light.

Arrange for your parcel to be delivered to a trusted neighbour, or other family members who will be at home, if you live in a flat, is there e.g. a caretaker or responsible person who could accept the parcel for you.

Use an off-site locker service for frequent deliveries, or for expensive items, these parcel boxes are more likely be in busy, safer locations – such as supermarkets – rather than secluded areas which could be targeted by thieves.
