Crime Prevention Tips

POSTED: December 8, 2016

Message from the Bettendorf Police Department:

Every year the police department receives several calls of stolen packages. If anyone has or will be ordering items online for the holidays to be delivered to your residence, here are some crime prevention tips for you:

• Request package be held at the terminal for pick up
• Use delivery tracking services/notifications online to arrange for someone to be home to receive package
• Have a trusted friend or neighbor pick up package for you
• Require signature for delivery of package
• Have package delivered to local retail store and pick it up there

These are just some suggestions for preventing your packages from possibly being stolen if you are gone all day at work.
