HSI’s Victim Notification Program

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is an American federal law enforcement agency under the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for identifying, investigating, and dismantling vulnerabilities regarding the nation’s border, economic, transportation, and infrastructure security. ICE has two primary components: Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). Headquartered in Washington, D.C., ICE is charged with the investigation and enforcement of over 400 federal statutes within the United States, and maintains attachés at major U.S. embassies overseas.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) are committed to protection the public and ensuring that the rights of victims are carefully observed. HSI administers a Victim Notification Program which allows eligible victims and witnesses to obtain reliable and timely information regarding a criminal alien’s release from custody. However, victims and witnesses are required to register with this agency in order to receive notification of a criminal alien’s release.

To this end, HSI requested the Alford Police Department to inform victims and witnesses located within the town of Alford about this valuable program. A hyperlink to the HSI’s Victim Notification Program has been placed on the Alford web site under the State Links section, which is accessible in the right-hand column on every page. A victim or witness can simply click on the hyperlink and be transferred to a number of valuable victim services programs provided by ICE.
