Fairbanks, AK, Postmaster Hal Barber, center, was presented a plaque and commendation by OIG Special Agents Georg Brendel, left, and Sara Harlan-Upp.

Fairbanks, AK, Postmaster Hal Barber has received high praise from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) for representing “the excellence, spirit and dedication of those who serve within the Postal Service.”

According to the commendation, Barber “has aided the USPS OIG and has been instrumental in the successful resolution of at least four criminal investigations.

“Postmaster Barber’s efforts and dedication directly contributed to the resolution of investigations that resulted in multiple criminal convictions, sentences totaling 360 days in jail, multiple administrative removals, and contract abatements for criminals violating the integrity of the Postal Service,” the commendation noted.

“His outstanding leadership and rapport with employees directly contributed to, and ensured the successful conclusion of, a recent investigation that put a stop to five years of prescription medication theft.  Postmaster Barber’s efforts to this investigation alone were above and beyond his duties as a postmaster; he preserved the integrity of at least 79 ZIP Code areas served by his office.”
