To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

The slideshow that the DEA's Office of Professional Responsibility uses to train DEA agents and their houses ahead of overseas assignments.

In the hearing before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, DEA Administrator Leonhart indicated that this slideshow included information about prostitution and security clearances, among other topics.

Given that this FOIA is submitted in my capacity as a journalist who has covered law enforcement extensively, I request that I be categorized as a media requester for the purpose of fees. Here is a selection of my published articles:
