"This report provides an overview regarding the feasibility, cost, and benefits of developing and deploying an online detainee locator system (ODLS) within CBP [Customs and Border Protection]. The intent of creating an ODLS is to provide the general public with an accessible system that would allow the public to conduct online Internet-based queries to locate persons detained by CBP for administrative and/or criminal violations. CBP has reviewed the possibility of such a system and determined that an ODLS is not operationally feasible and should not be utilized within its short-term holding facilities. Individuals in CBP custody are held temporarily in short-term holding facilities, and this report will provide an overview of the operational tempo and the challenges of creating such a system."
