Through a federal open records request, our investigative team learned last year alone that more than 600 mail carriers were robbed across the country.

Shawn Boyd, a Houston-area agent with the National Association of Letter Carriers, said there’s not enough being done to protect mail carriers.

He also said attacks on postal workers should concern everyone because, in addition to traumatizing employees, it puts residents’ packages and private information at risk. But, he said there’s just not enough investigators looking into these federal crimes.

“When there’s any type of mail theft, folks can be harmed in all kinds of ways. We’re talking about identity theft, we’re talking about theft of prescription drugs that come through the mail. … Packages, that’s always a big deal,” he said. “We need to put some law back in a lawless area right now.”
