Privacy Impact Assessment for the FEMA Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR)   [open pdf - 285KB]

From the Abstract: "The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), a component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), manages a process for Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR). This process, assigned to FEMA's Office of the Chief Security Officer (OCSO), is designed to collect, investigate, analyze, and report suspicious activities to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), Federal Protective Service (FPS), and/or other federal, state, or local law enforcement authorities required to investigate and respond to terrorist threats or hazards to homeland security. FEMA is conducting this privacy impact assessment (PIA) because this SAR process collects, maintains, and uses personally identifiable information (PII). FEMA OSCO is updating and replacing the DHS/FEMA/PIA-018 FEMA Suspicious Activity Reporting, dated September 9, 2011, to reflect that FEMA's SAR process will remain at the agency level and will not be centralized under a DHS wide SAR system."
