New Title 34 for US Code

The Office of the Law Revision Counsel has announced a new Title 34 to the U.S. Code: Crime Control and Law Enforcement. The previous Title 34 was repealed in 1956. The Office of the Law Revision Counsel of the United States House of Representatives prepares and publishes the United States Code, which is a consolidation and codification by subject matter of the general and permanent laws of the United States.

According to the Office of Law Revision Counsel, “The reorganization did not include provisions that were better retained in their current locations in the Code as part of the coverage of the following subjects:

  • Homeland security (classified generally to Title 6, Domestic Security)
  • Immigration (classified generally to Title 8, Aliens and Nationality)
  • Substantive federal crimes and federal criminal procedure (classified generally to Title 18, Crimes and Criminal Procedure)
  • Education (classified generally to Title 20, Education)
  • Control and enforcement with respect to controlled substances (classified generally to Title 21, Food and Drugs)
  • Control of international crime (classified generally to Title 22, Foreign Relations and Intercourse)
  • Crime control and law enforcement matters specific to Indians (classified generally to Title 25, Indians)
  • General organizational and administrative matters of the Department of Justice (classified generally to Title 28, Judiciary and Judicial Procedure)
  • Transportation security (classified generally to Title 49, Transportation)
  • National defense matters (classified to Title 50, War and National Defense)”

The reorganization was implemented in the online version of the U.S. Code on September 1, 2017, and will be in the printed version beginning with Supplement V of the 2012 Edition.
