Starting this week, the Mason City Police Department is ready to help keep your deliveries safe from thieves this holiday season.
Now through December 23rd, you can ship your holiday packages to MCPD instead of your home in an effort to avoid thefts by “porch pirates.” MCPD staff will be available to retrieve packages Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Package pick-up will also be available on Thursdays until 7 p.m. On Saturdays, December 4, 11, and 18, packages can be picked up from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
All packages must be picked up by December 23rd or they will be returned to the sender. Packages must weigh under 50 pounds and you’ll need a government-issued ID to pick up your packages.
MCPD is working with FedEx, UPS, and USP to coordinate delivery times.
