The holiday season is here which means porch pirates are on the hunt for the bountiful booty sitting on your porches.

According to the Benton County Sheriff's Office, porch pirates are out and about looking for your packages. They've shared a few tips to keep your packages safe during the holiday season.

1) Track Your Packages

2) Be Available For Delivery

3) Require A Signature

4) Choose In-Store Delivery

5) Keep A Doorbell Or Security Camera Pointed At Your Porch

Here are a few more tips to keep those packages safe as well.

Most shipping companies allow you to request the package be left at a less visible area, such as the back door instead of the front. Most also provide a tracking number so you can see when your packages will be delivered so you can try to be home. If possible, have them delivered to your work.
