Leaving a package or requiring a signature is the choice of the shipper
usually. For example, I ship lots and lots of stuff. In fact I have 7
parcels to ship today. When I use FedEx Ground I can on the form check
off signature required. UPS has the same function.
My front porch is reasonably safe to leave items. I'd rather they left
them than me have to go to the local terminal or be home. Just my
Life is like a jar of jalapenos.
What you do today might burn your ass tomorrow.
