FBI Will Once Again Give Test on Domestic Operations
By Allan Lengel
The FBI soon plans to give its employees a test on bureau policies for conducting surveillance on Americans. The test, if you recall, is called the Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide. (DIOG)
Last time the test was given for the DIOG, things didn’t go so well. In fact, a scandal developed. The Justice Department’s Inspector General last year found that a number of employees cheated on the open-book test on the DIOG. Some agents passed around the answers. Some finished in such short time it was obvious they cheated. Some folks got in trouble.
This time agents, analysts and other employees are going to take a test focusing just the revisions made on the DIOG. It will be much shorter.
Paul Bresson, spokesman for the FBI, said he expects the test to be introduced in the coming weeks.
“Prior to implementation of the revised Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide (DIOG), all FBI special agents and appropriate professional staff will be required to successfully complete a training course and assessment,” Bresson said in a statement to the ticklethewire.com
“This requirement, to include the assessment, is designed to review important concepts (including items focusing on respect for civil rights and privacy concerns) and to ensure that FBI employees understand the changes that are being made in the revised DIOG.”
“Much like other web-based training regularly provided by the FBI, the DIOG assessment will be part of the educational program.”
