DHS' Use of Law Enforcement Officers in Carrying out Its Mission

Project Objective

Determine whether the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) non-criminal investigative officers meet workload requirements in accordance with Federal laws and regulations. Additionally, we will determine the additional cost to the taxpayers for  officers performing non-law enforcement duties and not meeting the workload requirements. We will likely issue multiple products.
