Message from the Chief

With the busiest shopping season upon us, the Glendora Police Department would like to provide you with a few safety shopping tips.  Whether you shop on-line or in person please remember the following. 

If You Are Shopping in Person:  

  • Stay alert and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash and carry only a minimal amount of credit cards.
  • Do not carry your Social Security Card or PIN numbers in your wallet or purse, leave these items in a secure place at home.
  • Take extra time to close your purse and keep it with you while shopping in public places; don’t leave your purse or wallets in your shopping cart.
  • Shopping with your little ones? Teach them to go to a store employee or security guard if you get separated.  Ensure your children know your cell phone number.  
  • Also, remember that your parked, unlocked car is also a target for thieves, especially if you have items in plain view inside.  Always lock your doors, put the car windows up, and take your valuables with you, even if you are stepping away for just a few minutes.  

 On Line Shopping and Delivery Tips: 

Package thefts are common during this time of the year.  The following steps can help reduce the likelihood of being a victim.  UPS, FedEx, USPS, and every other delivery service will be out making deliveries to those who have placed Christmas orders for their loved ones, co-workers, and friends. 

  • Have your packages delivered to a location where they can be received in person, such as a neighbor’s house or your workplace, if allowed. 
  • Ask the delivery company to hold your package at their closest pick-up facility until you can pick it up.
  • If purchasing from a larger retailer, consider having your package delivered to a local store for pick-up.
  • Choose a specific delivery time when you will be home if that is an option.
  • Take advantage of delivery alerts so you can be notified when a package arrives at your home.
  • Provide delivery instructions so packages can be left out of sight from your yard or the road. 

Report any package thefts to the Glendora Police Department (GPD) at 626-914-8250. Doing so allows us to track trends in our community.  The GPD will be providing extra patrols, both on foot and by car, in shopping areas in our city.  We are fond of our community;  if you see one of GPD’s finest out and about make sure you say hello or wave to them, they will appreciate that! 

 
The Glendora Police Department Wishes you a
Safe and Happy Holiday Season!
