U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) has deployed a new information system called FALCON Tipline (FALCON-TL), which is a component system of the larger HSI FALCON environment.  This workflow management system supports the creation and maintenance of tips received by the HSI Tipline Unit about suspicious activity or suspected illegal activity, and the referral of this information to HSI field offices for appropriate investigation or other follow up.  The ACRIMe Tipline Module, the system that the HSI Tipline Unit currently uses to track tips, is being replaced by FALCON-TL.  This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is necessary because FALCON-TL will maintain personally identifiable information (PII) about the individuals who are reporting the tips and are the subject of the tips.
