    The mission of the DEA is to control abuse of narcotics and 
dangerous drugs by restricting the aggregate supply of those drugs. At 
the Federal level, DEA is the lead drug law enforcement agency. DEA 
accomplishes its objectives through coordination with State, local, and 
other Federal officials in drug law enforcement activities, development 
and maintenance of drug intelligence systems, regulation of legitimate 
controlled substances activities, and enforcement coordination and 
intelligence-gathering activities with foreign government agencies.

    Cooperation among Federal law enforcement agencies is extensive, 
especially within the nine Interagency Crime and Drug Enforcement (ICDE) 
regional task forces. DEA's involvement is integral to this nationwide 
coordinated enforcement strategy. With the ICDE program and the 
expansion of other agency cooperative efforts, overall drug enforcement 
capabilities have been significantly strengthened in recent years.

    The activities of the DEA are divided into the following general 
categories:

    Enforcement--
        Domestic enforcement.--This activity encompasses DEA's general 
    efforts to eliminate or immobilize major drug trafficking 
    organizations and thereby reduce the domestic supply of illicit 
    drugs.
        Domestic Enforcement includes the majority of the activities 
    encompassed within DEA's 21 domestic field divisions. These 
    activities include efforts to reduce the availability of illicit 
    drugs by immobilizing targeted organizations that are substantially 
    responsible for importation and distribution of drugs and by 
    focusing enforcement operations on specific drug trafficking 
    problems.
        State and local task forces.--This activity encompasses efforts 
    to reduce drug availability and immobilize major drug trafficking 
    organizations through intergovernmental cooperation with State and 
    local law enforcement agencies and through DEA's Mobile Enforcement 
    Team Program. There are currently 103 program-funded and 52 
    provisional State and Local Task Forces and 23 Mobile Enforcement 
    Teams participating in the program.
        Measures reported in past years, such as arrests, indictments, 
    and convictions, are not considered useful indicators of the outcome 
    or impact of law enforcement activities by the Department of 
    Justice. The Department will continue to develop new and more 
    meaningful performance measures as part of the implementation of the 
    Government Performance and Results Act. The measures below reflect 
    the level of activity performed by this program.

                                     1997 actual  1998 est.   1999 est.

DEA cooperative cases initiated.....       7,901       8,296       8,710
State and Local Task Force cases 
initiated...........................       6,545       6,872       7,216

Clandestine labs seized.............       1,232       1,294       1,359

        Foreign cooperative investigations.--This activity encompasses 
    efforts to (1) disrupt, as close to the source as possible, 
    production of opium, heroin, cocaine, marijuana, and illicitly 
    produced and diverted legitimate dangerous drugs destined for the 
    United States, and (2) collect and disseminate intelligence 
    regarding narcotics production and trafficking. The measure below 
    reflects the level of activity performed by this program.

                                     1997 actual  1998 est.   1999 est.
Foreign cases initiated.............         899         944         991

        Chemical diversion control.--This activity seeks to reduce the 
    diversion of legitimately produced controlled chemicals into illicit 
    channels at all levels of distribution and to provide the leadership 
    and support necessary to ensure that State and local agencies and 
    the chemical industry establish and maintain programs and policies 
    to control diversion. The Drug Diversion Control activities are 
    funded from the Drug Diversion Control Fee Account.
        The measure below reflects the level of activity performed by 
    this program.

    analysis, and dissemination of drug intelligence in support of the 
    enforcement operations of DEA and other Federal, State and local 
    agencies.
        DEA laboratory services.--This activity encompasses laboratory 
    analysis of evidence and expert testimony in support of the

Laboratory exhibits analyzed........      54,457      57,180      60,039

        DEA training.--This activity encompasses entry level training 
    for all special agents, diversion investigators, and intelligence 
    analysts; advanced, in-service and specialized training for 
    investigative and other personnel; executive, mid-level management, 
    and supervisory training for appropriate agency officials; and 
    foreign language training for DEA personnel assigned to overseas and 
    border offices as needed. In 1998, training will focus on basic 
    agent, in-service and specialized training activities. The measures 
    below reflect a portion of the level of activity performed by this 
    program.

    The account funds the following in 1998: (1) $5.5 million for the 
highest priority renovation and upgrade needs at DEA's current forensic 
laboratory facilities, and (2) $2.5 million to address repair and 
backlog of DEA-owned facilities.

    The 1999 request would fund DEA's continued efforts to replace and 
upgrade its forensic laboratory facilities and other DEA-owned 
facilities.

    Public Law 102-395 established the Diversion Control Fee Account in 
1993. Fees charged by the Drug Enforcement Administration under the 
Diversion Control Program are set at a level that ensures the recovery 
of the full costs of operating the various aspects of the program. The 
purpose of this program is to prevent, detect, and investigate the 
diversion of controlled substances from legitimate channels, while at 
the same time ensuring an adequate and uninterrupted supply of 
controlled substances required to meet legitimate needs.

    The measures below reflect the level of activity performed by this 
program.
