    Wired / Dangerroom: Child Porn, Coke Smuggling: Hundreds of DHS Employees Arrested Last Year

    Border Patrol agents smuggling weed and coke. Immigration agents forging documents and robbing drug dealers. TSA employees caught with child porn. Those are just a few of the crimes perpetrated by Department of Homeland Security employees in just the past year.

    Since the creation of the Department of Homeland Security nearly a decade ago, the agency’s inspector general has been tasked with uncovering corruption, waste and criminality within its own ranks. The IG has had his hands full.

    According to a newly released DHS inspector general’s summary of its significant investigations, 318 DHS employees and contractors were arrested in 2011 (.pdf). That’s about one arrest per weekday of the men and women who are supposed to be keeping the country safe. The report lets us not only see how corrupt some agents tasked with protecting the homeland can be, it also gives us a scale of the problem. In short: There are a lot of dirty immigration and border officers.

    This is the list that the DHS OIG put together for 2011. It has a few of the TSA crimes reported in the lists along with crimes by CBP and related agencies. Looks like a real cesspool at DHS.

    Be sure to click on the OIG link for the pdf from DHS.

    260 convictions, but only 119 personnel actions, leaving at least 141 convicted criminals still employed by DHS. Generally, in an organization where you care about even the APPEARANCE of impropriety, personnel actions exceed convictions.

    DHS is not one of those agencies.

    These are just the ones found so far. If TSA used its BDO program for weeding out TSA criminals I bet the numbers would be a lot higher, of course that is assuming the BDO program works which we all know is a false hope.
