Ready to fight mail theft? Join West Seattle Block Watch Captains Network on February 26

February 12, 2013 at 3:50 pm | In Crime, West Seattle news | 2 Comments

Early heads-up – two weeks from tonight, the West Seattle Block Watch Captains Network will take on a crime problem that’s repeatedly plagued several local neighborhoods: Mail theft. WSBWCN just announced that U.S. Postal Inspectors will be on hand to talk about it at their February 26th meeting, 6:30 pm, Southwest Precinct (Delridge/Webster) – and no, you do NOT have to be a Block Watch captain, or even part of a BW, to attend.

  1. We have a mailbox and I would like to convert it to a mail slot into my garage. Does anyone know what the regulations are to make this change? I asked my delivery person and he said I can’t do it. I looked on the Postal Website and couldn’t find any guidelines. Thanks

  2. Stu you should have problem converting it to a mail slot. I don’t know why your mailman or woman said you couldn’t. Maybe they are too lazy to walk the extra steps that may be needed to get to your garage. As long as what you are installing is postmaster approved then it doesn’t matter what your carrier says. Call westwood station or the West Seattle station and talk to a supervisor about it.
