The US Secret Service is tasked with keeping the President and members of his family safe. But newly released documents show that the agency has had trouble keeping tabs on its own equipment. Since 2001, the agency has lost at least 1,024 computers, 736 mobile phones, and 121 guns.
Judicial Watch obtained the numbers through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed in January. The Secret Service released the numbers this week, which is broken down into different categories of lost and stolen equipment. Of the 1,024 total computers lost or stolen, the Secret Service has misplaced 744 laptops, 258 desktops, and 22 tablets.
I have no idea how many personnel the US secret Service has, so can’t say if this is a lot or a little.
