DHS/ICE/PIA-032(a) – FALCON Search & Analysis System (FALCON-SA)

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a component agency within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), is establishing a consolidated information management system called FALCON Search & Analysis System (FALCON-SA). This system enables ICE law enforcement and homeland security personnel to search, analyze and visualize volumes of existing information in support of ICE’s mission to enforce and investigate violations of U.S. criminal and administrative laws. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is necessary because FALCON-SA accesses and stores personally identifiable information (PII) retrieved from DHS, other government agencies, and commercially available databases. It is also necessary to provide public notice of the existence of FALCON-SA and to publicly document the privacy protections that are in place for the system
