Many of you woke up this morning to an unusual parking citation. The citation was given to those who parked in the opposite direction of traffic known as a “Left to Curb” violation. The University Park Police do not normally issue citations for parking left to curb. Please accept my apology for the confusion. However, we do encourage all residents to obey the Town’s parking ordinance.
Please bring the parking citation to the Police Department to be voided.

Placing mail in a USPS blue mailbox is something that most of us have done at least once. It’s a simple task that comes along with the expectation that the mail will be delivered to the address listed on the envelope. The pandemic has not only disrupted and delayed the simple process of mail delivery, but thieves are now taking advantage of this chaotic time to commit fraud. Nationally, theft from mailboxes has dramatically increased and unfortunately, the Washington metropolitan area has become a hotspot for these types of crimes. For example, if you write a check for a service or send a check as a gift inside of a card, before the postal service can retrieve the mail, a thief will use an arrow key (taken during the robbery of a postal carrier) to open the mailbox and steal the contents. They then “clean” the checks by erasing the original information and rewrite them for large sums of money. The bank is usually unaware of the fraudulent activity until the customer has notified them. Unfortunately, Town residents have also been victimized by mail thieves. The University Park Police understand that this can be very frustrating for victims and recommends these basic tips to keep your mail safe:
In some instances, the bank has refunded the stolen money but that is not always the case. If you suspect your mail has been stolen, please call 877-876-2455.
