Report of the Homeland Security Advisory Council’s CBP Families and Children Care Panel Subcommittee

The Homeland Security Advisory Council’s CBP Families and Children Custody Panel is to provide findings and recommendations on the best practices from Federal, State, and local organizations regarding care for families and children in CBP custody. The Panel will be expected to: conduct visits to observe CBP operations and review non-privileged information to understand CBP’s operating environment, as well as the legal funding requirements that relate to individuals held in CBP custody, and all visits will be conducted in a way that protects the privacy of those in CBP custody and privileged information; study relevant aspects of short-term care, particularly for children, through interviews, research, and site visits; identify the best practices from Federal, State, and local law enforcement on short-term intake of families and children, and identify how these best practices are implemented; lastly, provide recommendations for any potential additions or changes to CBP policies, procedures, or training in relation to family and/or child custody, and include metrics as to how CBP would successfully implement said additions or changes.
