The holiday season is here, so many things to think about and do… Here are safety suggestions from our Senior Lead Officer, Adrian Acosta:
Good Afternoon! Every year the issue of package theft seems to get bigger and bigger. As we enter the Holiday Season I want to remind everyone of some very basic tips:
- Require a signature for your delivered packages
- Have packages shipped to an alternate location – neighbor or place of business
- If using Amazon consider using an alternate shipping location such as a locker at 7-11 or the newly installed lockers at Whole Foods.
If you do have to call 911 for a crime in progress and/or life-threatening situation, please call from a land line, if possible. Using a land line will reveal your address to the operator. The cell phone will only give the area, nearest cell tower. The system does not use GPS. For non-emergency calls, 1877-ASK-LAPD.
