MEDFORD, Ore. -- The Jackson County Sheriff's Office is encouraging the public to be on the lookout for porch theft. The Sheriff's Office said now is the time to focus on theft prevention with more online purchases arriving for the holidays. 

A few tips:

  1. Check your package tracking often so you know when to expect deliveries
  2. If you're not home during the day, have your packages delivered to a neighbor or to your workplace. Some shipping companies also have options to customize your delivery or to pick up your packages at their facility.
  3. Install surveillance cameras around your home. The presence of cameras will often deter thieves. If not, the video can help us track them down.
The Sheriff's office said if you see a person or car following a delivery truck around, let authorities know so they can check it out. You should try to get a good description of the vehicle, a license plate number, and a description of the people involved, if possible. 

Thefts or suspicious activity can be reported to dispatch at (541) 776-7206.
