Tampa gun violence leads USPS to tell carriers to avoid areas where there is a police presence

TAMPA, Fla. — Tampa Police want people living in the southeast Seminole Heights neighborhood to cooperate with officers and provide any information they have on the most recent shooting. Neighbors are also asked to pay close attention to what is happening along their streets.

Safety is clearly what most folks are thinking about. Some businesses are even taking it a step further. It is a delicate balance right now in Seminole Heights between vigilance and courage.

The U.S. Postal Service is making some changes, instructing its workers to avoid areas where there is a police presence.

“Our priority is the safety and well-being of our employees,” said Debra J. Fetterly, USPS Spokesperson. “Our letter carriers make every effort to deliver their routes as long as it is safe. We are keeping a watchful eye on the situation and will continue to do so.”
