ICE Agreements of Cooperation in Communities to Enhance Safety and Security: Fact Sheet [open pdf - 146KB]
"ICE Agreements of Cooperation in Communities to Enhance Safety and Security (ACCESS) provides local law enforcement agencies an opportunity to team with ICE to combat specific challenges in their communities. ICE developed the ACCESS program based on experience gained in responding to widespread interest from state and local law enforcement agencies in the Delegation of Immigration Authority--287(g) program. ICE ACCESS coordinates an umbrella of services and programs. ICE agents and officers will meet with agencies requesting ICE ACCESS assistance to assess local needs and to draft appropriate plans of action. Based upon these assessments, ICE and local agencies will deter¬mine which type of partnership is most beneficial and sustainable before entering into an official agreement. Law enforcement agencies interested in reviewing the enforcement programs under the ICE ACCESS program are encouraged to call their local ICE office or visit www.ice.gov for more information."
