Background

This report presents the results of our audit of all stamp and cash inventories at six postal units in Chicago, IL. These offices were located in the Chicago District of the Great Lakes Area. We conducted this audit in response to concerns raised by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service of potentially lost stamps, cash, and money orders due to looting of offices during protests and riots from May 29 through June 1, 2020.

The six postal units audited were Englewood, Station K, Wicker Park Retail Store, Wicker Park Carrier Annex, Ogden Park, and Henry W. McGee. All six postal units had thefts of mail and parcels. One unit had theft of stamps and cash. One unit did not have any stamp or cash inventory.
