CLEAR OUT AND SECURE MAILBOXES
I would like to remind residents to make sure their letterboxes are cleared of mail each day and, if possible, secure them with a lock. There have been reports of mail being stolen from letterboxes – particularly those from unit blocks and town houses. Thieves often target letterboxes looking for bank cards, cheques and even cash. Even more alarming, however, are the cases where thieves look to obtain personal information that may be used in fraud related offences. Call police if you suspect your mail has been stolen or interfered with.
