Change is Underway at DHS FOIA
DHS FOIA is moving to a NEW system which will allow us to process records faster. We expect to begin moving to the system in June. There may be a temporary delay in response to your request while launching the new system.
This page will teach you how to submit a request for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) records. DHS receives and responds to more FOIA requests each year than any other U.S. Federal Agency.
As the DHS Chief FOIA Officer, the Chief Privacy Officer oversees the FOIA program and reports on performance. Learn more about the law that gives the public access to DHS records on our Policy and Compliance page. Learn more about FOIA data on our Reports page.
