The Postal Inspection Service has added a Project Safe Delivery section to its website, highlighting the agency’s joint effort with USPS to combat mail-related crime.

The page, part of, debuted in mid-April. It offers background information, statistics and several success stories since the initiative’s launch last May.

The section also explains the importance of prevention and the role of communications, both internal and external, in raising awareness.

“The Postal Inspection Service is dedicated to safeguarding letter carriers and upholding the integrity of the mail system,” said Chief Postal Inspector Gary Barksdale. “The launch of this webpage signifies our commitment to educating the public about the critical importance of mail security and the decisive actions the Inspection Service is taking to ensure the safety of our postal workers.”

Since October, the Inspection Service has made 73 percent more arrests than in the same period the prior year. It conducted law enforcement surges in high-crime areas and supported the installation of high-security blue collection boxes and electronic locks in locations across the nation.
