The U.S. Postal Service says that its Project Safe Delivery campaign is paying off with more secure deliveries and 600 arrests across the country.

The campaign is a team effort involving the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and includes high-security locks and boxes.

The campaign also offers unprecedented rewards of $100,000 to $250,000 for information leading to arrests for crimes such as attacks on mail carriers, post office burglaries, and postage/metering tampering.

“As our nation continues to address a sustained crime wave, our targeted focus to crack down on postal crime is progressing,” said Postmaster General and Chief Executive Officer Louis DeJoy.

“The safety of our letter carriers — and all postal employees — is our top priority. We will continue to work steadfastly with our law enforcement partners to increase the safety of our employees and protect the sanctity of the nation’s mail.”
