As part of a review of the Department of Justice's affirmative action programs, questionnaires were sent to a sampling of employees at the U.S. Marshals Service to obtain information on attitudes, practices, and experiences concerning equal employment opportunity (EEO). An intradepartmental committee within the Department of Justice studying promotion and assignment practices at the U.S. Marshals Service concluded that the service needs a complete reevaluation and overhaul of its EEO program. The intradepartmental report dealt primarily with practices affecting the District of Columbia office, but it was believed that problems may exist throughout the service. The Attorney General should have the EEO Affirmative Action Program evaluated throughout the Marshals Service. The Marshals Service should insure that a system is developed to periodically evaluate the effectiveness of its EEO program.
