  • Ride-along thankyous (revisited)

    Just wondering about something that occurred after a recent ride-along...

    I mailed a handwritten thank-you note to the officer I rode with, addressed correctly to him at his location and it came back "Return to Sender - Not Deliverable as Addressed". I'm thinking that maybe he didn't recognize my name on the return address label and declined to accept it. I had also sent a printed letter to his sergeant at the same address and it didn't get returned.

    You can only speculate, so my question is: Do officers not like to accept mail that's sent to them at the station because it might be...I don't know...hazardous, sabotaged, etc.?

    I'd guess you either wrote the wrong address or the post office screwed up. You don't get mail sent back with "return to sender- not deliveralbe as addressed" because the person didn't want the letter it's because there was something wrong with the address.

      Just drop it off at the station; problem solved.

        If a person doesn't want to accept mail sent to them through the regular mail (i.e. not certified) they don't have a choice. It gets dropped in a PO Box, a mailbox or place of employment and the person can't just contact the USPS and say they don't want it. If it got sent back "Return to Sender" then either the address doesn't exist, there was insufficient postage, or something along those lines.

        I don't have a choice what mail I do, or don't, get at the station. It gets dropped off daily with the ladies at the front window, and they distribute it to my mailbox.
