HSI's Information Management Division supports ICE and the Department of Homeland Security by improving methods for managing different types of information and directing how it is shared with other agencies and organizations. Programs and projects under Information Management focus on merging methods and technology that result in better law enforcement operations.

Law Enforcement Information Sharing Initiative

The Law Enforcement Information Sharing Initiative works to advance information sharing at all government levels. The initiative's goal is to make sharing critical information regarding terrorism and threats to homeland security easier, and to increase the usefulness of that information. This service is vital for preventing terrorist acts against the United States.

Law Enforcement Support and Information Management

Law Enforcement Support and Information Management manages information technology programs and initiatives, working with ICE's Office of the Chief Information Officer to ensure the best use of methods and technology throughout ICE and the Department of Homeland Security. It directly supports HSI's law enforcement and mission support programs and helps develop major advancements in technology used to combat crime.

Law Enforcement Support and Information Management ensures that HSI complies with current information technology standards and security requirements. It also supports information sharing and intelligence reporting. Additionally, it gathers reports based on statistics collected during investigative casework.

Law Enforcement Support and Information Management consists of the following elements:

Guidance, Procedures and Information Section prepares and archives correspondence for HSI's Mission Support and Information Management divisions. The section contains a group of technical communications experts who support high-level executive projects, prepare documents and provide their expertise to staff in need of writing or editing assistance.
