The Justice Department is sending out this memo to all its employees Friday warning them that soliciting prostitutes is a violation of department policy, whether off duty or off. The caution follows recent allegations that Drug Enforcement Administration agents had “sex parties” with prostitutes hired by local drug cartels in Colombia.

Justice Department officials will also review the security clearances of the DEA agents accused of engaging in sexual misconduct in Colombia to ensure that they do not present a security risk. The agents could be suspended or fired, an official said.

A report two weeks ago by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz found that 10 DEA agents working in Colombia attended the sex parties. Seven of the 10 agents admitted to being at the parties, most of which took place at an agent’s “quarters,” which was leased by the U.S. government.
