DHS/ICE/PIA-046 Laboratory Information Management System


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) owns and operates the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) as part of its Forensic Laboratory. The HSI Forensic Laboratory (HSI-FL) implemented LIMS to facilitate and store data related to the scientific authentication, examination, research, and analysis of documents and the enhancement of audio-visual (AV) materials. HSI-FL also examines latent finger and palm prints found in the field. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) update is being published to provide transparency regarding a new subsystem within LIMS called LatentCD, which allows the HSI-FL Latent Print Unit to ingest and manage the workflow of unidentified latent prints.
