The Homeland Security Department says it will stop using the Federal Protective Service to secure its Washington headquarters. That’s notable because the service is part of DHS. The irony caught Congress’ eye. A recent hearing examined the problems facing the Federal Protective Service. Mark Goldstein was called to testify. He is director of physical infrastructure issues at the Government Accountability Office. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss what the Federal Protective Service is supposed to do.
Tom Temin is the host of The Federal Drive, which airs from 6-10 a.m. on 1500 AM in the Washington, D.C. region and online everywhere. Tom has 30 years experience in journalism, mostly in technology markets. Before coming to Federal News Radio, he was a long-serving editor-in-chief of Government Computer News and Washington Technology magazines.
