The Justice Department was sharply criticized Thursday for rarely checking references for law-enforcement candidates, according to a report by the agency’s inspector general, the Washington Post wrote

The report said all government agencies are encouraged to conduct reference checks when choosing new employees, the report said.

The Justice Department only mandates those background searches for new attorney applicants, according to Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz.

Horowitz said that some in charge of hiring “are simply not bothering to check references.”
