Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-Flushing) announced in July that she recently sent a letter to Louis DeJoy, Postmaster General and CEO of the United States Postal Service (USPS), urging the agency to prioritize Queens in its newly announced effort to combat mail theft, and further secure green relay boxes throughout the borough. The Postal Service’s new Joint Project Safe Delivery is an initiative unveiled in May that fea- tures expanded crime prevention measures to crack down on the theft of mail. It includes replacing tens of thousands of keys used by letter carriers, installing high security collection boxes, and implementing other important upgrades. The plan also seeks to enhance employee safety and strengthen consumer protec- tions. It was announced after Meng called for more to be done to address mail theft.
