The United States Postal Service (USPS) is rolling out new measures to crack down on mail theft. The agency says criminals have now been stealing mail carriers' keys too, so it's doubling down on its efforts to protect mail and those who deliver it.
The initiative is called "Project Safe Delivery" and includes plans to install 12,000 high security blue collection boxes nationwide and replace 49,000 mail carriers' arrow lock keys with electronic ones.
The USPS will also be offering enhanced in-person change of address transactions starting May 31. Post office customers seeking a change of address will now receive a validation letter at their old address and receive an activation letter at their new address.
