Davidson Police Department Warns Residents to Take Precautions with Residential Mailboxes
The Davidson Police Department recently received two reports of theft from mailboxes in town and offers the following suggestions:
- Collect your mail promptly from your residential mailbox, once it’s delivered by the USPS,
- For outgoing mail, do not place mail in your mailbox until the morning of pick-up (rather than the night before), and
- For outgoing mail, drop it off at the post office or in a blue USPS mailbox.
“One of our core values is to help make Davidson a safe place to live,” said Police Chief Penny Dunn. “These simple precautions can help prevent property and identity theft and fraud.”
