The Bozeman Police came up with some tips and strategies on how to keep your packages safe this holiday season. This includes:

  1. Team up with a neighbor, sometimes the best strategy is working together.
  2. Have packages delivered to work, genius idea.
  3. Leave special delivery instructions, maybe there is a place they could put your package that no one can see in plain view.
  4. Sign up for delivery alerts, this is a great choice.
  5. Have packages delivered to a "mailbox" store, then you can pick them up when you can.
  6. Purchase a lockable package delivery box, good choice unless you have a big package that won't fit.

These are all great ways to keep your packages same this holiday season.
