There are things you can do to keep your holiday gifts and packages safe.
- Consider having it shipped to your work, a friend's house or pick it up directly from the post office.
- Follow online tracking. If you follow along, you can get a good idea of when it will be delivered and plan ahead.
- If you have packages in your car and parked in a parking lot, cover your packages so they aren’t easily seen and, most importantly, lock your doors.
