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:
- Check your package tracking often so you know when to expect deliveries
- 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.
- Install surveillance cameras around your home. The presence of cameras will often deter thieves. If not, the video can help us track them down.
Thefts or suspicious activity can be reported to dispatch at (541) 776-7206.
