Mail Theft

Crime Prevention Tips, by Officer Giusti

  • Retrieve your mail on or about the time it is delivered.
  • Do not leave mail in the mailbox overnight.
  • When out of town have a neighbor pick up your mail, or notify the Post Office to have your mail stopped.
  • Never put out-going mail, which contains checks or personal identification numbers, in your mailbox.
  • Report any suspicious activity, or people loitering near mailboxes or around the neighborhood.

When choosing a mailbox choose one bearing these three recommended factors in mind: Strength, Durability, and Function.

  • A narrow mail drop which makes it difficult to remove mail from the box.
  • One made of steel that locks to help deter vandalism and mail theft.
