DHS-ICE-PIA-015-f Enforcement Integrated Database

The Enforcement Integrated Database (EID) is a shared common database repository for several DHS law enforcement and homeland security applications. EID captures and maintains information related to the investigation, arrest, booking, detention, and removal of persons encountered during immigration and criminal law enforcement investigations and operations conducted by certain DHS components, namely U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).  The Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for EID was published in January 2010.  Since its publication, the PIA has been updated several times to reflect the expansion of information entered into EID, the types of information shared with foreign governments, and an enhanced electronic sharing capability.  This update addresses plans to further expand criminal history information sharing, to include fingerprints and photographs with foreign countries about their nationals who are being removed from the United States.  The sharing of criminal history information will be formalized using a Memorandum of Cooperation signed by DHS and each country that elects to participate in these sharing agreements.
