Update on Explosive Devices in Mail

Web News Article #: 

10/26/2018 - Federal authorities announced that an arrest was made in connection with the explosive devices being sent through the mail.

However, an arrest does not mean the danger is over. There is still a possibility that additional pieces remain in the mail stream. APWU leadership again reminds you to be vigilant and continue to be on the lookout for any suspicious devices. Alert and observant postal employees have already helped to intercept some of the devices in the mail stream.

The suspicious and anonymous mail protocols are in place to protect you and the American public from dangerous items. Please follow these protocols and always err on the side of caution when a piece of mail appears suspicious.

The Postal Service recently released an additional Stand-up Talk in regards to both the arrest and suspicious packages.
