To help combat an uptick in mail theft, Hawai‘i Police Department is issuing safety tips to help keep your holiday mail safe.
Police continue to see an increase in mail theft, both incoming and outgoing, from residential mailboxes.
Police urge residents to:
- Install locked mailboxes at their residence to deter theft of incoming mail.
- Drop off outgoing mail at a secure United States Postal Service drop box, or post office.
Anyone that witnesses suspicious activity or may have been a victim of mail theft is urged to call the Hawai’i Police Department’s non-emergency line at (808) 935-3311.
