27 shotguns for all the fraud and abuse in the entire US educational system?
They're going to need a lot more than that...

I still don't get why there is an enforcement agency for the Dep. of Education. Did the FBI get over educated into donut eating desk jockeys?

Corrected per BILLCA

The DOE is the agency that , with the teachers union, destroyed our education system ! For the guns perhaps they are part of the Homeland Security .

Criminal Investigators

relax...These folks are all FLETC trained to the same degree as U.S. Marshals, Treasury, and other agents. A small, but necessary cadre, that we shouldn't waste our time worrying about. Besides law enforcment in nearly ANY venue can be hazardous to your health.

"DOE" is a misleading acronym.

The Dept. of Education has a small police force to secure mostly it's admistration buildings.

The "other" DOE - Department of Energy employs it's own "security force". Among other places they guard are...
- Oak Ridge Laboratories, TN
- Nuclear Power Plants
- Lawrence Livermore National Labs in CA
- Sandia National Labs in NM
- Fermi Labs outside of Chicago
- National Ignition Facility (Fusion research)

And many other facilities.
Some of these facilities require only minimal gate security and light facility security (i.e. Sandia is on Kirtland AFB) while others require a 30-40 man force (e.g. Lawrence Livermore).
