  1. I had a check stolen from the mailbox outside of the Dunkirk PO 2 years ago – this has been going on for a long time. Why not just put a camera up on the Dunkirk PO roof pointed to the mailbox – you should be able to catch the license plates of those that are doing it and this is a cheap solution! Come on law enforcement – you can figure this one out!

  2. I think the reason they don’t have cameras is because no one is smart enough to use a Hi-Def (HD) camera to be able to obtain license plates. Currently (look at all surveillance shots used on this website) the resolution is set to 1 pixel per inch.
