With the holidays here, make sure you are taking steps to keep your packages safe…

There have been reports of packages being stolen from doorsteps and recently a thief was arrested. Torrance Police say thanks to the help of community members they were able to find the suspect.

Here are some tips:

  • Ask for a tracking number to know when your package is delivered.
  • Try to be home
  • When you’re placing an order, try to schedule shipment for a day you expect to be home.
  • FedEx also suggests requesting a signature for delivery.
  • If you want your package placed at a specific spot at your home, you can leave a note in your delivery instructions.
