USPS Employee Security Information
Measures include taking all necessary steps to
ensure facility security, taking extra care when accepting mail at the counter,
and exercising caution when collecting and delivering mail. Carriers and other
employees are asked to immediately report any suspicious mail items to Postal
Inspectors and local law enforcement officials. These measures will remain in
effect until further notice.
Security Procedures will be followed on a daily basis at all USPS locations:
Exercise diligence when observing mail accepted
at the counter. Follow all mail acceptance procedures and ask questions to
determine if packages contain hazardous materials.
Carriers and other employees involved in mail
collection are to exercise caution. Report suspicious mail items to Inspection
Service personnel and local law enforcement officials.
Casual employees who are delivering mail should
wear either caps or shirts with our postal logo. Carriers who use satchel
carts must keep the cart in view at all times.
All collection boxes, lobby mailboxes and/or
collection receptacles should have a current legible Form DDD-1 or DDD-3.
“Target mail” should be identified, isolated and placarded. The Aviation Mail
Security Program should be complied with through the use of self-audits.
Lock any vehicle that cannot be maintained in
full, direct sight to ensure that neither it nor its content is tampered with.
Vehicle Maintenance Facility (VMF) managers
must ensure that surplus vehicles are properly and completely prepared for
disposal. If contractors do this work, VMF managers must verify that it is
performed correctly for every vehicle. A daily inventory of all postal-owned
and leased vehicles must be performed.
Front and rear GSA- or P-tags (commonly used on
the administrative or "non-mail hauling" fleet) must be accounted for daily.
The Inspection Service, local postal police and the VMF Manager must be
notified immediately concerning any lost or missing vehicles or government
USPS ID badges, Air Operations Area access
badges and other access control cards provided to employees and contractors
must be accounted for. USPS IDs must be retrieved from employees and
contractors when they no longer have business with USPS. These IDs must then
be deactivated. Access control cards that are reported lost must be
Updated Continuity of Operations Plans (COOP) and other contingency plans must be available.
For those employees with access to USPS computer systems:
Be especially vigilant before opening e-mail
that doesn’t come from a USPS.GOV or USPS.COM address. If you don’t know the
sender, don’t open it.
Lock your workstation when you leave your work
area. Protect your laptop. Secure it with a lock while docked or at your work
area. And, keep it secure if you are away from your work area.
Be especially mindful about providing any
personal or postal information, including log-on or password information.
