 NEW BERLIN – Police in New Berlin are offering some tips to keep your holiday gifts safe from burglars.

Cyber Monday packages will soon be on local doorsteps, and police say the that will bring out thieves, as well.

“Anything you can do so it's not sitting on your porch like a $20 bill waiting to be taken by someone who just sees it laying there,” says officer Tony Fus.

Some of their tips include choosing a shipping option that requires a signature, or leaving a note for the delivery driver asking him to leave the package with a neighbor.

Or, for really valuable items, have the shipper hold the package for pick-up.
