Ooops! U.S. Marshals Service Loses Track of at Least 2,000 Encrypted Two-Way Radios

Here’s an embarrassing revelation about the U.S. Marshals Service.

Devlin Barrett of the Wall Street Journal reports that the agency has lost track of at least 2,000 encrypted two-way radios and other communication devices valued at millions of dollars.

The Journal cites internal agency documents, and notes that “some within the agency view as a security risk for federal judges, endangered witnesses and others.”

Barrett writes:

The problem, which stretches back years, was laid out in detail to agency officials at least as early as 2011, when the Marshals were deploying new versions of the radios they use to securely communicate in the field. Agency leaders continued to have difficulty tracking their equipment even after they were warned about the problems by an internal technology office, according to the documents, which were obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests.
