September proved to be a very interesting mail threat month. From ricin targeting the White House and agencies in Texas to threats aimed to intimidate the NAACP. There was a significant increase of white powder threats targeting locations that included facilities studying COVID 19 vaccines, hospitals that dealing with massive pandemic deaths, and city halls that didn’t extend protections against those affected. Frustrations with the current situation and actions associated with them will most likely continue as the next “wave” of infections is expected to arrive in the upcoming weeks and months — now is the time to make sure your mailroom is protected.
White powder mail threat events have increased in frequency and become the primary means of targeting for locations for the November 3rd elections. With few voting or polling stations open in September these mail threats targeted Election Boards or Centers.
