[ARCHIVED] Happy Holidays from the Fort Madison Police Department
The Fort Madison Police Department wishes to extend Christmas and New Year’s greetings to all.
During this time of year more and more gifts and packages are being home delivered due to on-line shopping. With this comes the temptation for thieves to steal your packages that are left on your doorstep. We would like to offer 4 tips to help you from being victimized.
1. Try to have someone home when packages are delivered
2. Closely track your packages on line most all delivery services offer Apps to track the location of your packages
3. Coordinate pick-up of packages with your neighbors if you are unable to be home when they arrive.
4. Check with a supervisor at work to see if it would be possible to have packages delivered to your work.
The Fort Madison Police Department will do our part to help with extra patrol.
