LOCAL RESIDENTS MAY SOON NOTICE A PAW PRINT ON THEIR MAILBOX AS PART OF A PART OF A NEW POSTAL SERVICE PROGRAM AIMED AT PREVENTING DOG ATTACKS ON LETTER CARRIERS. STARTING THIS WEEK LOCAL POST OFFICES WILL BE PLACING PAW STICKER ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE MAILBOXES WHERE THERE IS A KNOWN DOG IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA. THE STICKER WILL ACT AS A REMINDER TO PROCEED WITH CAUTION WHEN THE CARRIER APPROACHES THE AREA. THE PAWS PROGRAM IS JUST ANOTHER WAY THE POSTAL SERVICE IS WORKING TO FIND CREATIVE WAYS TO REDUCE DOG BITES WHICH REMAIN A SERIOUS CONCERN FOR CARRIERS.  CUSTOMERS WILL ALSO RECEIVE A CARD EXPLAINING THE PROGRAM. IF A CUSTOMER OBJECTS TO HAVING A PAW STICKER PLACED ON THEIR MAILBOX, HE OR SHE CAN CALL THE TENNESSEE CONSUMER AFFAIRS OFFICE AT 615-872-5642, TO REQUEST IT BE REMOVED.
