Today we live in a society filled with instant communication; emails, texting, messaging, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Tumblr. A society filled with sleek new innovations; fancy, complex technologies that have begun to fill every element of people’s lives, and the need to have the newest and best electronic device. In all of this rush and impatience, society seems to forget the simpler, more traditional ways of communication, one that dates back to the dawn of this country and one that has lasted through trials and tribulations, the written letter. The United States Postal Service (USPS) was founded upon this traditional form of communication, but in this age it can be seen as obsolete, and if it does not adapt to the new world
In Daniel Stone’s editorial article, “Flying Like an Eagle”, he advises the USPS some guidance to boost up their profit and their usage to the community. One of his inputs on the
The Post Office Department known as the United States Postal Services (USPS) (Annual Report, 2009) today, is a dominate player in the mail delivery arena and has been existence since 1776. The Post Office was originally a governmental agency, but due to mismanagement by Congress, was reorganized in 1971 and no longer a part of the presidential cabinet; but became an independent establishment of the executive branch of the Government. To date, the USPS maintains a monopoly on the day-to-day delivery of mail but competitors do share the market on some of the other types of deliveries; shares the market on some of the other types of deliveries (i.e. express
This creates more business for the alcohol and tobacco industries of the United States. The bureau also assists local, state, and other Federal law enforcement and tax agencies to make sure that the trafficking of illegal alcohol and tobacco is thoroughly monitored on all levels of government (ATF, 1).
On October 14, 2012, ATF Public Information Officer Alexandria Corneiro and ATF Special Agent Whitney Hameth, came to speak to our class about The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, also known as ATF. They began by introducing themselves and explaining to us the geographical area in which ATF is responsible for. As of right now their field office is in Dublin Ca.; however, they are responsible for ATF field offices in all Northern California, as well as, Nevada. The main ATF Headquarters is in Washington, DC., and there are field offices stationed throughout the United States. ATF trains and employ special agents to investigate violations of Federal Law involving alcohol, tobacco, firearms, explosives and arson. This profession commands a certain type of individual; therefoe, one must be in outstanding mental and physical shape; in addition, train rigorously, to, operate in stressful situations.
Although, it may seem the FBI knows about the majority of criminalistics situations; they have been doing this job for many years and many years to come. John continues, “The FBI originated from a force of special agents created in 1908 by Attorney General Charles Bonaparte during the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt (2).” This organization has been serving justice since the Roosevelt years in the early 1900’s. Everything the FBI is capable of, could not be demonstrated with perfection if it was not for their structure. This structure consists of being part of the U.S. Department of Justice, which is headed by the United States Attorney General. The authority they are granted are to enforce the law on a federal level (Sections 533 and 534, Title 28 of the U.S. Code). These are the ways the Federal Bureau of Investigation works from the agencies missions, history of the agency and the impressive structure of the agency, which makes them one of the major aspects of the federal law to the United States of America. From the approval of President Roosevelt to establish the beginning of the FBI,
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, otherwise known as the ATF, is one of 60 criminal justice programs under the Department of Justice. Their mission is to regulate and investigate crimes related to the above mentioned items.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is the United States of America domestic security and intelligence which also serves as the federal government’s law enforcement agency. Working under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI simultaneously considered as part of the US intelligence community, comprises of many other federal and state agencies and reports to both the Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence. The agency performs a leading role in counterintelligence, counterterrorism, and criminal investigative roles making it have jurisdictions of over 200 categories of federal crime. Even though most of FBI’s roles are domestic and limited to crimes within the US borders, it is equivalent to intelligence

In the topic of federal law enforcement agencies, a federal law enforcement agency is an organizational unit with the task of prevention, detection, and investigation of crime and the apprehension of alleged offenders. There are 65 federal agencies and 27 offices of inspector general that employs full-time personnel that are allowed to make arrests and carry firearms ("Types of Law Enforcement Agencies", 2015). Examples of federal law enforcement agencies include the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Secret Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, in the year of 2004 the most of the Federal officers were U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Federal Bureau of Prisons, the FBI, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, with each having over 10,000 officers, ("Types Of Law Enforcement Agencies", 2015), but in the census of federal law enforcement officers which happened in 2008 some agencies that employed full-time officers, who had authority of federal arrest,

We live during a time where the world is at our fingertips. We live in a world where an apple is not just a fruit and a chip is not just something that we eat with a sandwich. Sliced bread is not the most amazing thing any more. The Unites States Postal Service (USPS) is becoming less and less of a necessity with the changes of America's needs. In order to keep up with the 21st century, the USPS needs to be reconstructed in order to meet the needs of a changing world by being accessible through the internet, being advertised more to the younger generation, and being more secure from theft and destruction.
When it comes to The United States Postal Service, I did not think they would have many court cases, especially dealing with diversity and mistreatment in the workplace. During my research, however, I was proven wrong. The Postal Service has had quite a few court cases, while many of them relate to ethical and discriminatory issues. Individuals have felt that the Postal Service sometimes judge applicants or workers by their lifestyle or ethnicity. This in turn shows bad representation of personnel management. One case that shows proof of this is the United States Postal Service v. Aikens. Harold Aikens, who was a black employee of the USPS, opened a case against his job being that he felt he was not receiving promotions because of his ethnicity. This is a direct violation of Title VII if found to be true. According to the USPS, Aikens “applied for a promotion for which he possessed the minimum qualifications, and that the employer selected a nonminority applicant, the parties and the Court of Appeals have unnecessarily evaded the ultimate question of discrimination…” (Bartholet 1982). Ultimately, the court upheld that Aikens did not in fact present a valid prima faci case, which the plaintiff creates a belief that the employer discriminated against him, and have evidence that backs up his claim. Due to the failure to prove that he was being discriminated against due to his race, the case did not go in his way. Regardless of the judgement, this
The United States (U.S.) Army and the United States Postal Service (USPS) are both great organizations to work for. The USPS delivers mail to virtually every household and business nearly every day. The USPS handbook states that the organization processes and delivers more than 167 billion pieces of mail, letters, cards, ads, bills payments, and packages every year (Sales and Associate Handbook 1-1). On the other hand, the Army’s mission is to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. The Army also helps with natural disasters, providing security for events. Both government occupations provide great benefits, job security, and little training. The two jobs are
