Border Security: CBP Could Improve How it Categorizes Drug Seizure Data and Evaluates Training, Report to Congressional Requesters [open pdf - 3MB]
From the Highlights: "Within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), CBP [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] is responsible for securing the nation's borders and preventing the illegal flow of people, contraband, and drugs from entering the U.S. CBP has an important role in national efforts to prevent the use of illicit drugs and the misuse of prescription drugs. Specifically, CBP is responsible for interdicting drugs and working with other federal agencies to prevent their importation. GAO [Government Accountability Office] was asked to review issues related to CBP's drug seizure data and training. This report examines (1) how CBP collects and categorizes drug seizure data in its systems and monitors trends in drug seizures, and (2) to what extent CBP trains its officers and agents on the process for recording drug seizures and evaluates its training."
