NORWALK, Conn. -- 'Tis the season ... for porch pirates.
The Norwalk Police Department urges Fairfield County resident to protect their packages with the following tips:
- Have your package delivered to your workplace.
- Require a signature for delivery.
- Schedule the delivery when someone will be home.
- Ask a trusted neighbor or friend to pick it up.
- Arrange for the package to be left at the backdoor, so it's not visible from the road. Most of these thefts are crimes of opportunity.
- Install video surveillance.
