Package Theft Crime Statistics
We are constantly adding new package thefts to this map to show how neighborhoods are being affected by package thieves. We do this so we know where to put more resources to protect against this easy crime. Package theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in American neighborhoods and shows no signs of slowing down. It is hard for police to follow up on all of them and many times the crime doesn’t get reported to police. Therefore we have to help each other in our communities to fight against the growing crime. We believe our Package Guard can help but we still need the help of others with products designed to slow down the thieves.
We have also gathered statistics and facts from several sources to give you a comprehensive look at how the crime is affecting consumers in the US. You can access that fact sheet here. Did you know that 33% of consumers are concerned about package theft in their neighborhood.
