Postal workers demand protections as reports of assaults and robberies increase

October 25, 2023


AURORA, Colo. — No matter the weather, they’ll deliver.said conditions have deteriorated and enough is enough.

“This violence against our members must stop,” said Brian Renfroe, the president of the association, at a rally outside Aurora’s main post office Tuesday. “It’s terrifying to hear that anybody would take a life into their hands over mail,” said Bryan”OB” Sanders.”We look out for the community.

In March, police said two teenage girls robbed a mail carrier at gunpoint before a shootout with Lakewood Police. Just last month, two thieves attacked a mail carrier in Aurora — stealing mail and the key USPS uses to open apartment boxes.

“We just need accountability. We can’t let attacks on federal workers just be slaps on the wrist,” Byrne said. He wants suspects to face federal charges — not state prosecution. The postal service’s unofficial motto covers rain — not robbery. But Sanders said the threat of the latter won’t stop mail carriers from delivering to the people they serve.
