GPD to fend off porch pirates by accepting packages

The Grafton police department is helping fight porch pirates by offering to accept packages for town and village residents throughout the holiday season.

“We want you to shop with confidence and be free of the worry that your packages will not be stolen this holiday season,” Police Chief Jeff Caponera said in a press release.

Town and village residents may have their online orders delivered to the Police Station through Jan. 1.

To use the program, the department asks residents to have orders delivered to the police station at 1981 Washington St., Grafton, WI 53024. Residents should make sure their name is on the package as it appears on their identification.

Packages will be available for pick up  between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. daily. The department asks that packages be picked up within five days of delivery.

When picking up their packages, residents should have their identification and tracking paperwork with them so their package isn’t accidentally released to someone else.

The program is free, but the department asks that those who participate bring a canned food item or unwrapped toy to help those who may be in need. Those items will be distributed by Family Sharing’s Food Pantry and Kapco’s Kids2Kids Christmas.
