Porch Pirates: Tips for Cyber Monday

Package on a porch

For many, Cyber Monday signals the start of the holiday shopping season. The Town of Windsor Police Department wants to remind residents to be vigilant this holiday season as packages begin arriving on doorsteps. 

Consider following these tips to thwart package thefts: 

1. Ask a neighbor to pick up a package if you're away from home.

2. Offer to pick up a neighbor’s packages.

3. Request for packages to be sent to your post office or participating location. 

4. Call the Windsor Police regarding suspecting package theft.

5. Share surveillance footage of a package theft in action.

It’s important to note that Nextdoor is not a replacement for our local police department. If you fall victim to porch pirates, please report it by calling the Windsor Police at 970-674-6400. 

Thank you and happy holidays!
