Over a two-week period in the fall of 2018 politicians and political activist received what were perceived to be improvised explosive devices through the mail. This case study will examine in detail, how and why these devices, despite obvious warning signs, were allowed to enter and be transmitted though the USPS system. We discuss the lessons learned and how threat awareness training and proper internal visual screening protocols can prevent such items from entering your organization’s mail stream. This timely topic will discuss how the use of screening and threat awareness tools, available to all mail operations; can mitigate the risk associated with mail borne threats.
