The Laramie County Sheriff's Office has some tips to help foil people who steal packages from porches this holiday season.

That's according to a post on the agency's Facebook page.

The post offers the following tips:

1. Track your packages and get them picked up as soon as possible
2. Install a video doorbell
3. Consider buying a porch lockbox
4. Require signature on delivery
5. Make it obvious you have a home security system with signs and visible cameras
While porch pirates can strike at any time, they tend to be especially active during the holiday season, which offers a greater opportunity because of the larger number of package deliveries.
A lot of people are victimized by porch pirates. A survey by the home security company Safewise found that three out of four people included in the survey had a package stolen by thieves at least once in the past year. The same survey found that 40 percent of those folks had packages stolen more than once.
