The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Office of Law Enforcement (OLE) has been directed to report on its Cooperative Enforcement Program partner needs. However, the Office of Law Enforcement does not track its partner agencies’ internal policies and procedures related to the recruitment, retention, and training of its officers or impacts from agencies’ capacity to perform as requested by Congress in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2022 (117th Congress (2021-2022)). To acquire, analyze, and submit this information in a final report to Congress, the Office of Law Enforcement will need to deliver an electronic survey to its twenty-nine (29) partner agencies requesting the information identified by Congress: shortages of trained personnel, maintaining maritime domain awareness, formal operational agreements with other Federal law enforcement agencies, access to advanced technological enforcement tools, and other issues as warranted.
Congress directed National Marine Fisheries Service Office of Law Enforcement to “[…] document and report to the Committees on the needs of its partner State and territorial law enforcement agencies, in particular with regard to shortages of trained personnel, maintaining maritime domain awareness, formal operational agreements with other Federal law enforcement agencies, access to advanced technological enforcement tools, and other issues as warranted,” within 180 days of the enacting of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2022 (117th Congress (2021-2022)) (the Act). The Act was enacted on March 9, 2022; the final report must be submitted to Congress on September 5, 2022. The Office of Law Enforcement must draft the survey questions; deploy the survey; collect survey answers; evaluate the answers; synthesize responses from twenty-nine (29) state and territorial partner agencies; perform the review, edits, and finalization of the report; and submit the final report into the review and approval process before submitting the mandatory report to Congress on September 5, 2022.
