Kindergarten cops

When Corona, CA, kindergartner Lily Fox wrote USPS last month to express her concerns about mail theft, she didn’t know it would lead to a visit from postal inspectors.

Lily penned the note for a class project, addressing it to PMG Megan J. Brennan.

“I want the bad people to stop stealing our mail,” Lily wrote. “People are sad because their mail is stolen. Can you put the bad guys in jail?”

The letter prompted postal inspectors Dennis Adams and Christine Reins-Jarin to visit Lily’s school to educate her class on how the Inspection Service protects the mail.

Los Angeles Assistant Inspector in Charge Melisa Llosa coordinated the visit and said it offered a platform for students to talk to Adams and Reins-Jarin about the mail thefts that were occurring in their neighborhoods.

Lily wasn’t at school that day, but she later received a care package from the Inspection Service.

“This was a great opportunity for us to engage with the community, especially children,” said Llosa. “We look forward to doing more of this in the future.”
