Systems of Records Notice for the Department of Homeland Security Traveler Redress Inquiry [open pdf - 31KB]
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is giving notice that it proposes to add a new system of records to its inventory of record systems, the DHS Redress and Response Records System. This system maintains records for the DHS Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (TRIP), which is the traveler, redress mechanism being established by DHS in connection with the Rice-Chertoff Initiative, as well as in accordance with other policy and law. As the manifestation of the one-stop redress for travelers objective stated in the Rice-Chertoff Initiative, DHS TRIP will facilitate the public's ability to provide appropriate information to DHS for redress requests when they believe they have been denied entry, refused boarding for transportation, or identified for additional screening by DHS components or programs at their operational locations, including airports, seaports, train stations and land borders that may have resulted in the individual being delayed or inconvenienced. DHS TRIP will create a cohesive process to address these redress requests across DHS.
