DHS/ICE/PIA-057 Angel Watch Program


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operates the ICE Angel Watch Program (AWP). The AWP mission is to proactively identify individuals who have been convicted of sexual crimes against children and have upcoming travel to a foreign country, in order to notify law enforcement and/or border security in the destination country. In 2016, AWP was codified by the International Megan’s Law to Prevent Child Exploitation and Other Sexual Crimes through Advanced Notification of Traveling Sex Offenders (International Megan’s Law or IML).1 This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) assesses the privacy risks presented by AWP’s operations, including its disclosures to U.S. Government agencies and foreign law enforcement and border security agencies, under IML.
