The U.S. Postal Inspection Service continues to work with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to help protect America’s children from predators. While the crimes associated with child exploitation have reached the Internet, the mail can still be a conduit for purchases. Individuals who use the U.S. mail to contact their prey become subject to investigation and prosecution.

In 1985, the United States Postal Service joined ADVO, America’s largest company specializing in targeted direct mail services, and NCMEC, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, in forming a private-sector partnership with a heroic mission.
