Dededo and Yigo postal units under investigation


The Dededo and Yigo Contract Postal Units will be closed indefinitely due to an ongoing investigation.

According to Brian W. Shaughnessy, Postal Inspector of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the ongoing investigation is being conducted by Guam Postal Inspectors.

“It should be noted that no Postal Service employees work at either of these locations, as both Contract Postal Units are staffed entirely by contracted workers,” Shaughnessy said.

“Postal service customers of the Dededo and Yigo Contract Postal Units who believe they may have been victims of mail theft should file a complaint with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service by calling toll free (877) 876-2455, or by visiting our website at, and filing a complaint there,” he added.

Last week, USPS confirmed that the Dededo and Yigo have been temporarily closed due to an ongoing audit.

Duke Gonzales, USPS Strategic Communications Specialist, said the closure of the two CPUs will allow the USPS to complete an audit of their operations.

Gonzales apologized to customers for the inconveniences caused by the closures.

During these closures, he said they are asking Dededo and Yigo P.O. Box customers to pick up their mail over the counter at the Barrigada Post Office.

At the moment, USPS does not know when the two CPUs will reopen.

Contract Postal Units or CPUs are supplier-owned or supplier-leased facilities operated by private vendors under contract with the Postal Service to provide postal products and services to the public at U.S. Postal Service prices.
