"The Alien Criminal Response Information Management System (ACRIMe) is an information system used by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to receive and respond to immigration status inquiries made by other agencies about individuals arrested, subject to background checks, or otherwise encountered by those agencies. The Enforcement Integrated Database (EID) is an ICE case management system that captures and maintains information related to the investigation, arrest, booking, detention, and removal of persons encountered during immigration and criminal law enforcement investigations and operations conducted by ICE and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. ICE is combining ACRIMe and EID data via the ICE Integrated Decision Support (IIDS) System, a reporting sub system of EID, to enable and enhance comprehensive reporting about criminal aliens throughout the alien identification, apprehension, and removal process. To effectuate this reporting, ICE is modifying ACRIMe to expand its user base within the agency, implementing new user functionality in ACRIMe and EID, and updating IIDS to support enhanced reporting of ACRIMe and EID data. ICE is further expanding ACRIMe support for the Secure Communities initiative. ICE is conducting this PIA update to address these modifications and enhancements."
