ABSTRACT

CBP Needs Additional Oversight to Manage Storage of Illicit Drugs   [open pdf - 5MB]

From the Highlights: "U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is responsible for storing and destroying illicit drugs seized by DHS law enforcement pending prosecution and sentencing of violators by the U.S. Department of Justice. We audited CBP's drug storage and destruction process because of concerns about safety and security risks related to illicit drugs. Our objective was to determine whether CBP effectively stores seized drugs in permanent vaults. We made four recommendations for CBP to improve the management of its processes to store seized drugs in its permanent vaults."
