Keeping your mail and packages safe. It seems like this year flew by in a haze of masks, hand sanitizer and social distancing. Our work, school and home lives collided in ways they never did before. Everything changed.
That is, everything except the mission of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. Every day, rain or shine, COVID-19 or not, the Inspection Service works to protect your mail, USPS employees and USPS facilities. We’re still investigating crimes, keeping the mail safe and educating the public on scams and schemes. If you haven’t already, I recommend checking out our website to learn more about the Inspection Service and how you can identify and avoid scammers. Protecting your mail every day
As we head into the holidays, many of our traditional celebrations and gatherings might be a little different than in past years. With social distancing still an important piece of our lives, most of us will not be visiting or traveling as much as usual. This means more of you will rely on the U.S. Mail to share gifts, personal greetings, treats and more. It’s just as important to us as it is to you that these items reach their destinations safely. We’ll continue to protect the mail each and every day, but we could use your help to keep your mail and packages safe.
