DHS/S&T/PIA-029 Data Collection for the Centralized Hostile Intent Project

The Centralized Hostile Intent (CHI) program within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) collects video images of trained actors posing as passengers, as well as members of the traveling public at the Theodore Francis Green Memorial State Airport in Providence, Rhode Island. The Centralized Hostile Intent program goals are to assess whether behavioral indicators of malicious intent can be observed by trained professionals (e.g., TSA Behavior Detection Officers) from video images in a remote environment. Remote screening offers the potential for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to expand the scale of its behavior detection program without correspondingly increasing staffing costs. The data collection involves collection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in the form of video images that include the face and body of trained actors and members of the traveling public. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) addresses privacy issues associated with the collection of the video data for the Centralized Hostile Intent (CHI) program and updates the previously published PIA for “Project Hostile Intent Technology.”
