The department has been using the bait package system since the summer in order to improve efforts to solve cases and make potential thieves think twice about grabbing something from a porch, especially during the busy holiday season.

“The deterrent factor is huge,” Carringer told City News Service.

The bait package program by the department utilizes GPS technology that communicates with nearby cell towers and is triggered once the package moves.

Police then get updates on its location every three seconds, which includes how fast the package is moving, CBS LA reported.
