DHS/ICE/PIA-019 Online Detainee Locator System


The Online Detainee Locator System (ODLS) is a publicly accessible, Web-based system owned by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). ODLS allows the public to conduct online Internet-based queries to locate persons detained by ICE for civil violations of the Immigration and Nationality Act. ODLS is intended to allow members of the public, especially family members and legal representatives, to determine whether an individual is currently in ICE detention and, if so, at which facility the person is detained. ICE conducted this PIA because this system makes available to the public personally identifiable information (PII) about individuals detained by ICE.
