ABSTRACT

Federal Protective Service: Many Approved Security Recommendations Were Not Implemented and Preliminary Work Suggests Law Enforcement Deployments Have Increased, Statement of Catina B. Latham, Acting Director, Physical Infrastructure, Testimony Before the Subcommittee on Oversight, Management, and Accountability, Committee on Homeland Security, House of Representatives   [open pdf - 909KB]

From the Highlights: "Over one-million federal employees and visitors depend on FPS [Federal Protective Service] to provide security and protection at more than 9,000 facilities across the country. FPS assesses these facilities to identify security risks and then recommends security measures. In addition to this work, FPS provides law enforcement services on a short-term basis or in specific situations for individual agencies. This testimony focuses on (1) stakeholders' views about FPS's facility assessments and the status of its security recommendations and (2) preliminary observations on FPS's law enforcement deployments. This statement is based on past work issued in June 2021 (GAO-21-464 [hyperlink] [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=855011]) as well as ongoing work on FPS's security recommendations and its move to DHS's Management Directorate in 2019."
