ABSTRACT

DHS Law Enforcement Components Did Not Consistently Collect DNA from Arrestees   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Highlights: "The 'DNA Fingerprint Act of 2005' authorized the Department of Justice (DOJ) to direct Federal law enforcement agencies to collect DNA samples from persons arrested or detained under U.S. authority. We conducted this audit to determine whether DHS law enforcement components collected DNA samples as the 'DNA Fingerprint Act of 2005' and subsequent DOJ regulations require. [...] We recommend DHS oversee and guide its law enforcement components to ensure they comply with requirements of the 'DNA Fingerprint Act of 2005' and 28 C.F.R. § 28.12."
