1. Southwest Border Enforcement Initiatve 56 28 $9,643
 
The Interagency Crime and Drug Enforcement (ICDE) requests 56 positions, 28 FTE, and $9,643,000 to address prosecutorial resources along the Southwest Border and strengthen the U.S. Marshals Service’s (USMS) ability to apprehend fugitives in the region. This initiative addresses the current prosecution deficit in the Southwest Border region identified in the National Southwest Border Counternarcotics Strategy and Implementation Plan by providing an average of six Assistant U.S. Attorneys for each of the five judicial districts along the Southwest Border. This initiative also allows USMS personnel to be more fully integrated into OCDETF pre-takedown efforts, which in the past has successfully led to a high arrest rate (93 percent when USMS is integrated in pre-takedown efforts). Included in this request is $2,802,000 to support communications costs associated with the Vehicle Identification Initiative, an effort to gather valuable law enforcement intelligence regarding Mexico-based Consolidated Priority Organization Targets and affiliated “Gatekeeper” organizations involved in bulk cash smuggling. FY 2009 current services resources for the Interagency Crime and Drug Enforcement are 3,576 positions, 3,522 FTE, and $521,938,000.
