The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations-Forensic Laboratory (HSI-FL) owns and operates the Imaged Documents and Exemplars Library (IDEAL), a centralized repository of images of and document characteristics from travel and identity documents, as well as reference materials concerning attempts to counterfeit or tamper with those documents. IDEAL is used to support the HSI-FL’s mission to conduct forensic document analysis in support of law enforcement investigations and activities by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other agencies. IDEAL assists HSI-FL employees in locating, verifying, and storing documents in the HSI-FL Library. ICE conducted this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) because personally identifiable information (PII) of individuals is often captured in the images and other records maintained in IDEAL.
