The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) established its Mobile Enforcement Team (MET) program in 1995 to combat violent drug-related crime. This Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) audit examined "the design and implementation of the MET program and to evaluate the success of MET [Mobile Enforcement Team] enforcement operations. [The OIG] performed [...] audit work at DEA Headquarters in Arlington, Virginia; the Atlanta Division Office; and the St. Louis Division Office. At these locations, we interviewed personnel including Section Chiefs, Staff Coordinators, Special Agents in Charge, Assistant Special Agents in Charge, and Group Supervisors. [The OIG] also examined MET deployment requests, assessments, and budget documents, as well as arrest, seizure, and MET deployment impact information." The report makes six recommendations to improve the MET program.
