PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Cyber Monday makes it easier for people to get all of their Christmas shopping done in the convenience of their home and have the packages show up right at their doorstep.

However, packages left unattended can attract thieves.

Here are a few tips from the Police Crime Prevention Staff to make sure your packages don't end up in the hands of thieves.

    Track your packages and plan to be home when delivered.
    Have packages shipped so that a signature is required.
    If you can't be home, have packages delivered to a friend, family member or a neighbor.
    If allowed, have packages delivered to you at work.
    Have the package delivered to the carrier substation or mailbox store.
    Use the ship-to-store method.
