The Vernon North Okanagan RCMP is offering some helpful tips to keep your goodies safe this Holiday Season. With the Holiday Season fast approaching comes the ramp up in online shopping and deliveries. It’s a convenient and easy way to cross the names off your list, but we want to remind the public that piles of unattended packages make an attractive target for thieves looking to do some holiday shopping of their own.

Here are a few steps you can take to protect your goodies:

Most delivery services offer tools that let you keep track of your packages as they make their way to you, states Constable Chris Terleski, Media Relations Officer for the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP. You can even arrange for safe delivery spots and receive immediate notifications when they’ve been delivered. These types of thefts are not exclusive to the Holiday Season and taking these steps year-round will reduce your risk of being victimized and having your items stolen.
