By Caitlin Snow Nov 29, 2023 | 6:00 AM

With the holiday season underway Halifax RCMP are reminding residents to be weary of porch pirates.

To avoid having your packages stolen from your doorstep they recommend a few simple things:

  • scheduling deliveries for when you are home
  • use a secure delivery locker, or nearby pick-up location
  • have your packages delivered to your workplace or a neighbour’s
  • request a signature
  • install cameras
  • report suspicious activity

They ask if you are a victim of theft, contact police.
