COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — TheÂ season for online shopping is upon us.
In an effort to decrease theft, ColerainÂ Township police will allow residents to ship packages to the police department instead of leaving them outside, where they could be stolen.
From now until Dec. 24, Colerain Township residents can have deliveries sentÂ to 4200 Springdale Road, Attention: Police Department, Cincinnati, Ohio 45251.
Jim Love, Colerain Township police spokesperson, said it’s common this time of yearÂ for thieves to driveÂ around to look for packages. Love said police spend a considerable amount of time taking reports for stolen items, soÂ the delivery initiative benefits both residents and police.
â€œThe benefit is quite a bit for the people out there as the holidays get closer,â€� Love said. â€œPeople walking, driving around. They see packages all over. The calls go up. We have to spend quite a few man hours responding to those calls — theft calls — taking reports, doing all that. Really itâ€™s a win-win for us.â€�
