GAO presented its Administration of Justice issue area plan for fiscal years 1997 through 1998.
GAO plans to assess: (1) federal law enforcement's response, in partnership with state and local governments, to violent crime, drugs, and other major threats facing society; (2) the efficiency and effectiveness of the federal courts and corrections systems, given the increasing demands placed on them and current budgetary constraints; (3) the Immigration and Naturalization Service's ability to effectively and efficiently enforce immigration laws and enhance service delivery; and (4) the U.S. Customs Service's effectiveness in implementing its drug interdiction and investigative missions and fulfilling its trade enforcement mission.
