March 2019 Colorado Springs Chapter Breakfast Meeting

Thursday, March 28, 2019 - Fraud Cases within the U.S. Postal Inspection Service

Course Description
Please join us for a presentation by Eric Manuel from the U.S. Inspection Service.  Inspector Manuel is excited to find new opportunities to spread the word about USPIS, the nation’s oldest federal law enforcement agency.  Inspector Manuel will share how Postal Inspectors can assist local law enforcement and private sector investigators with a wide variety of investigations which may involve over 200 federal laws related to the U.S. Mail.  In this presentation, Inspector Manuel will cover the wide array of cases worked by Postal Inspectors, and he will explain the various resources available from USPIS to enhance your investigations.   Inspector Manuel will also explain the delicate balance of working for a federal law enforcement agency that is funded through a quasi-government corporate entity (USPS), and how this impacts a Postal Inspector’s abilities to release information and respond to official inquiries.
