DHS/ICE/PIA-020 Alien Criminal Response Information Management System (ACRIMe)

The Alien Criminal Response Information Management System (ACRIMe) is an information system used by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) headquarters and field personnel to receive and respond to immigration status inquiries made by other agencies about individuals arrested, subject to background checks, or otherwise encountered by those agencies. The original ACRIMe Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) was published on April 22, 2010, and has since been updated on September 29, 2010 and January 24, 2013. ICE is updating this PIA again for the following reasons:

  • To document that the ACRIMe Field Module (“ACRIMe Field” or “Field”) is being deployed to Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Field Offices across the country;
  • To indicate that the module formerly referred to as the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) Section Module is now called the Wants and Warrants Module;
  • To describe the technical services that ACRIMe uses to query other government databases for relevant information; and
  • To explain that ICE is now using ACRIMe to respond to inquiries submitted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regarding the immigration status of potential sponsors of unaccompanied alien children (UAC). September 2018
