The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department receives numerous calls for service regarding U.S. mail theft and the theft of packages. Between credit card solicitations, holiday gift mailing, and tax filing season, it important if you see something, say something!
Mail theft is a crime of opportunity. Criminals are looking for personal identifying information that can be used in identity theft. Ways to prevent identity theft are to not mail any personal information from unsecured mailboxes. Make sure you pick up your mail promptly after delivery and do not leave outgoing mail in the mailbox overnight. Use the letter slots inside the post office, or hand your mail directly to the mail carrier. Also, make sure to review your credit report at least every 12-months.

If you see a crime in progress, immediately call 9-1-1. Safely attempt to provide as much information about the suspect(s) as possible. If the crime has already occurred, report the incident to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department non-emergency line at 951-776-1099. Also report the incident to the Postal Inspector at 1-877-876-2455 or online http://postalinspectors.uspis.gov .
