Word of Advice

Holiday package thefts tend to rise November-December. If you are not going to be home when a package is being delivered, consider other options such as having the package delivered to your workplace, having it dropped at the back door of your house instead of the front, or picked up by a neighbor.

Vehicle theft also rises at this time of year when car owners leave their vehicles running, unattended, to warm up.

As always, report anything suspicious to the Provo Police Department.
