OCOEE, Fla. – A local police department is helping residents avoid thieves this holiday season. 

Ocoee police are allowing residents to have their online purchases be shipped to the police station in an effort to curb porch thefts.

In a Facebook post, the department said residents can have their packages sent to 646 Ocoee Commerce Parkway through Dec. 22. 

Residents can then pick up their packages in the lobby of the station, after presenting proper identification. 

Officers said packages will only be released to the person whose name is on the package.
