- Project Title:
- Review of Postal Inspection Service Area Case Management
- Start Date:
- Wednesday, March 6, 2019
- Estimated Report Release Date:
- August 2019
The mission of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service is to support and protect the Postal Service and its employees, infrastructure, and customers; enforce the laws that defend the nation’s mail system from illegal or dangerous use; and ensure public trust in the mail.
Postal inspectors are federal law enforcement agents responsible for investigating postal-related crimes. The inspectors typically document preliminary investigative work under area cases. Oversight of area cases are managed at division level.
The OIG would like to hear from you about how Inspection Service area cases are managed and documented.
- What practices or guidelines do other law enforcement organizations follow for managing and documenting preliminary investigations?
- How could the area case management process be improved?
