DHS-ICE-PIA-039 Acquisition and Use of License Plate Reader Data from a Commercial Service

The Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has procured query-based access to a vendor-owned commercial License Plate Reader (LPR) data service that stores recorded vehicle license plate data from cameras equipped with license plate reader technology. ICE uses LPR data from this service in support of its criminal and administrative law enforcement missions. In March 2015, ICE published a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) announcing ICE’s intention to procure access to a commercial LPR database and describing the controls ICE would put in place to ensure the agency complies with privacy and civil liberties requirements when using the service. This PIA Update explains ICE’s operational use of the service it has procured and describes the privacy and civil liberties protections that have been implemented by the agency and the vendor.
