FOIA Library

DHS regularly posts frequently requested and other categories of records that provide transparency into the agency’s operations. Before you submit your request, browse what has already been released on our DHS FOIA Library. The DHS Privacy Office FOIA Library has records from most headquarters-level offices, including the Office of the Secretary, and other high-profile releases made by Components.

Search the DHS FOIA Library, Component FOIA Libraries, and Major Information Systems to learn what records have already been released.

The Office of Homeland Security Statistics (OHSS) was established in September 2023, replacing the former Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS). OHSS was established to perform independent statistical reporting for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). OHSS will continue to produce legacy OIS data and reports along with a number of new immigration products, and also report on a range of additional topics, including immigration, law enforcement use of force, and intellectual property rights enforcement. Over time, OHSS reports will cover all DHS homeland security statistical data, including cybersecurity; emergency management; infrastructure protection; maritime; screening; terrorism and targeted violence; and chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear. Find all public data and records released by OHSS.
