Alternate Title: Department of Homeland Security: Annual Report on Sexual Abuse and Sexual Assault by Customs and Border Protection Employees (Fiscal Year 2016 Report to Congress)
"CBP [Customs and Border Protection] has a zero tolerance policy prohibiting all forms of sexual abuse and sexual assault of individuals in CBP custody, including in holding facilities, during transport, and during processing. CBP is committed to protecting the safety of individuals in CBP custody, and it is CBP's policy to provide effective safeguards against sexual abuse and sexual assault for individuals in CBP custody. This policy prohibits sexual abuse and sexual assault of a detainee by another detainee; sexual abuse and sexual assault of a detainee by agents, officers, other CBP staff members, contractors, and volunteers; and retaliation against any person, including a detainee, who reports, complains about, or participates in an investigation of sexual abuse and sexual assault. OPR [Office of Professional Responsibility] maintains the Joint Intake Center (JIC) in partnership with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The JIC is the central processing center responsible for receiving, documenting, and referring all allegations of employee misconduct. The Joint Integrity Case Management System (JICMS) is the case management system that electronically tracks and categorizes all allegations and incidents reported to the JIC. This annual report provides a summary of the sexual abuse and sexual assault misconduct allegations and the investigative findings documented in JICMS from October 1, 2014, through September 30, 2015."
