DHS establishes new CBP database and proposes privacy exemptions

  1. Original Date Announced

    September 21, 2017

    DHS has established a new records system, DHS/CBP–024 CBP Intelligence Records System (CIRS), which includes raw intelligence information collected by CBP’s Office of Intelligence (OI), public source information, and information initially collected by CBP. This information is analyzed and incorporated into intelligence products. Information stored in the DHS/CBP–024 CIRS System of Records may be shared with other DHS components. In the notice, DHS proposes to exempt the database from certain Privacy Act provisions due to "criminal, civil, and administrative enforcement requirements." This exemption allows DHS to refrain from disclosing some held information that individuals request about themselves. [ID #865]
