The Postal Inspection Service was recently honored with an international award for its efforts to keep mail safe from terrorism and other threats.
The World Mail Awards, which are given by an international group of industry leaders, recognized the Inspection Service for its Dangerous Mail Investigations (DMI) program.
“We’re extremely honored to receive this award for our work in the past year to assist in the prevention and detection of crime within the postal network,” said Dave Bowers, Inspector in Charge of Security and Crime Prevention. “I can’t imagine the Postal Service operating now without the DMI program.”
Postal Inspector Matt MacMillan, who is stationed at a U.S. base in Germany, accepted the award this month at a ceremony in Brussels.
