‘Tis the season for porch pirates

The Piedmont Police Department reminds residents to be vigilant as holiday packages arrive on doorsteps. 

A few simple actions can help thwart package thieves:

  • Talk to your neighbors! Keep each other updated about any package thefts in your area.
  • Offer to pick up a neighbor’s packages while they’re away.
  • Ask a neighbor to pick up your packages if you’re going away.
  • Subscribe to delivery alerts and track your packages.
  • Have your packages delivered to your workplace, an Amazon Locker/Hub Counter, PO Box, or a FedEx/UPS location.

If you experience package theft, please call Piedmont Police at 510-420-3000 to report a crime. For emergencies dial 9-1-1.
