Statement of condolence from Acting Secretary McAleenan regarding the death of Deputy Sandeep Dhaliwal

On behalf of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, I want to extend our deepest condolences and gratitude to the family and friends of Deputy Sheriff Sandeep Dhaliwal.

His sacrifice is a reminder of the brave men and women in law enforcement who put themselves at risk to protect their neighbors and communities each and every day.

DHS/ALL/PIA-075 Workforce Analytics and Employee Records

Workforce Analytics and Employee Records is a Federal Human Capital Business Function whereby federal agencies implement a systematic process to review workforce and performance data, metrics, and results. Federal agencies conduct these reviews in an effort to anticipate and plan for future strategic and operational requirements and to make holistically informed Human Capital Management decisions. Specifically, federal human capital organizations generate evidence-based metrics to support decision-making concerning recruitment, staffing, training, and workforce development. The Workforce Analytics and Employee Records Business Function also facilitates compensation and benefits modeling, as well as the application of statistical models on such human resources (HR) issues as retention rates, time to on-board, retirement trends, and employee engagement. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) because the systems and data sources that support Workforce Analytics and Employee Records at DHS collect, use, store, and transmit personally identifiable information (PII) and sensitive personally identifiable information (SPII).

The broad scope of this relationship has progressed into key agreements with respect to economic and environmental cooperation; cultural, humanitarian, and security support; counternarcotic efforts; and migration.
