DHS/ICE/PIA-060 ICE Pilot on Use of Body Worn Cameras

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is conducting a Body Worn Camera (BWC) Pilot at select field office locations: three within the Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) and three within the Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) (collectively, ICE). The ICE Office of Firearms and Tactical Programs (OFTP) is coordinating the effort among the respective ICE program offices, and is responsible for the training, testing, evaluation, and oversight of the Body Worn Camera Pilot. The purpose of the Body Worn Camera Pilot is to examine the operational feasibility of an enterprise-wide Body Worn Camera requirement by identifying the costs and benefits, including workload impacts, time commitment, and logistical challenges associated with implementation. The initial goals of the Pilot are to determine the effectiveness of using Body Worn Camera technology to provide an accurate representation of law enforcement encounters, while allowing ICE field personnel to safely perform their duties. This pilot will be executed in an operational environment; therefore, any data collected in support of enforcement activity during the Pilot will be used to support the mission. ICE is publishing this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to evaluate the privacy risks associated with the potential use of Body Worn Camera technology on a wider scale and to address any issues related to the product selection, collection, retention, and storage of the information collected from Body Worn Camera usage.
