Rep. Joyce Beatty calls for postmaster general to resign in wake of mail carrier robberies

January 19, 2023


There have been six mail carrier robberies since November across central Ohio.

Mail carrier safety has reached the halls of the nation’s capital.

In response to the latest robbery, US Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio) sent a statement saying “This is unacceptable, and I demand action from the postal service leadership including the resignation of Postmaster Dejoy.”

Last year, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) sent a letter to the Postal Inspector asking to “reinstate the patrolling duties of Postal Police Officers (PPOs) in the face of increasingly widespread, costly, and dangerous armed postal robberies and mail theft.”

The request came after it Brown said he learned USPS changed its patrols and “restricted the presence… to postal facilities while prohibiting them from patrolling mail carrier routes.”

Zaire White is approaching his seventh year a mail carrier.
