Description

United States Postal Service; inspectors. Removes the word "Inspection" from references to the United States Postal Inspection Service in several criminal procedure sections. The United States Postal Service restructured its law-enforcement agencies in 1997 and currently has two federal law-enforcement agencies with jurisdiction to investigate Postal Service-related crimes. By removing the word "Inspection," both agencies are included in Code sections governing conservators of the peace, issuance of search warrants, and analysis of forensic evidence. Read the Bill »
