1571. Assaults Between Postal Employees

For physical assaults between postal employees, it is requested that prosecutive consideration be given only to those incidents which originate from and continue in such a manner as to involve job-related disputes without significant fault of the victim. Those physical assaults originating from or substantially involving personal matters not related to their employment or which involved significant fault on the part of the victim should be referred to the local prosecutor or handled administratively by the Post Office Department.
