Acting Attorney General makes first visit to DEA HQ

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker visited DEA Headquarters for the first time in his current capacity on Wednesday. 

The visit, hosted by Acting Administrator Uttam Dhillon, afforded AAG Whitaker a chance to see much of DEA’s headquarters facilities and receive a briefing on current operations within the agency. 

Beginning in the DEA Museum, Sean Fearns, Section Chief for Community Outreach, highlighted the displays in the museum to include the recently opened display on Forensic Sciences which is located near the headquarters Wall of Honor.

Following the museum tour, AAG Whitaker moved to the DEA command center for a brief orientation to the agency’s nerve center by Deputy Chief of Operations Michael DellaCorte, before concluding his visit by meeting with DEA senior leaders in the Administrator’s Conference Room.
