The U.S. General Accounting Office reported on U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) compliance with provisions in the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986 requiring the Department to make available military resources to Federal drug law enforcement agencies.
As required by the Act, DOD submitted to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives Armed Services Committees a report containing a available means of assistance and a resource distribution plan. The DOD also convened a conference of drug law enforcement agencies, including the Customs Service, Coast Guard, and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), to determine an appropriate distribution of assistance. At this conference, the Customs Service, DEA, Coast Guard, and State Department made specific requests for the available support; after the conference, Customs withdrew its request for helicopters and jeeps. Also as required by law, DOD entered into memoranda of agreement with DEA and the Coast Guard. 2 appendixes
