The Harrisburg Bureau of Police's Community Service Division is warning "porch pirates" to leave packages where they are.

Here is a list of tips to avoid such thefts this holiday season.

Take advantage of services like Amazon's locker delivery or other similar options through other retailers or delivery services. These options allow for customers to pick up packages at a secure location at a time convenient to them.

Use curbside or store pickup options instead of having a package delivered to your home or If possible, consider getting packages delivered to your work address.

For packages being delivered to your home, work with trusted neighbors or relatives to ensure someone is available to get a package off your porch when it is delivered. The longer a package sits on a porch, the more susceptible it becomes to thieves.

Other options for porch delivery include having a concealed area where a package can be placed that is not easily visible.

Consider a security camera or doorbell that will alert you if someone approaches your front door.

If possible, require a signature for delivery, particularly for items of considerable value.

Subscribe to delivery updates through the retailer or carrier to track when your package is scheduled to arrive.

I filed a complaint on my fathers death in August & got 1 voicemail from Atah Alakpo-Martim. I have tried calling countless times and left many voicemails. It's now December and I have yet got any reply...guess I will have to go to a higher position power! Very unprofessional! Awful as a man who serves the community!
People ask, Why defund the Police? Well, One guy with a v**e got stopped by 30 Police cars, 40 Militarize Police officers pointing guns and Tactical AR-15s, Lasers, Shields, etc. for no reason at all, No crime, No probable cause, just paranoia, triger happy keeps pointing AR to empty seats, the waste of resources is evident, excessive resources, I bet they used Helicopters and Drones too:
Thank you for a wonderful event had a great time
The National Night Out event at Camp Curtin was nice. The fireworks were great not only bc I could sit on my back porch and watch, I thought, as my many of my neighbors did as well, it was a better show then what is put on by the city on 4th of July. Nice job!!!! Please next time have candy apples (red candy) and cotton candy. I need to get my diabetes on🤣🤣🤣🤣
