Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records
Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), the Criminal Division (CRM), Department of Justice, proposes to modify an existing system of records entitled ``Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Fusion Center System,'' JUSTICE/CRM-028, which covers the records maintained by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) Fusion Center, Executive Office for the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force, Criminal Division, and rename it the ``Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Fusion Center and International Organized Crime Intelligence and Operations Center System.'' In recognition of the demonstrated interrelationship between criminal organizations that engage in illicit drug trafficking (and related criminal activities) and those that engage in international organized crime, involving a broader variety of criminal activity, the International Organized Crime Intelligence and Operations Center (IOC- 2) and OCDETF formed a partnership. This partnership will facilitate both OCDETF and IOC-2 mission needs by collocating multi-source criminal law enforcement and intelligence data into one central system in order to assist OCDETF and IOC-2 in executing their responsibilities with respect to drug trafficking, international organized crime, money laundering, firearms trafficking, alien smuggling, terrorism, and other enforcement efforts, including the identification, location, arrest and prosecution of suspects, and civil proceedings and other activities related to such enforcement activities. Additionally, two new routine use disclosures are being added to the system notice. Routine use (t) pertains to the suitability/eligibility of an individual for a license or permit and routine use (u) includes notification of a terrorist threat.
Privacy Act of 1974; Implementation
The Criminal Division (CRM), Department of Justice, proposes to amend its Privacy Act regulations for a newly modified Privacy Act system of records entitled ``Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Fusion Center and International Organized Crime Intelligence and Operations Center System,'' JUSTICE/CRM-028, as described in today's notice section of the Federal Register. The ``Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Fusion Center and International Organized Crime Intelligence and Operations Center System,'' JUSTICE/CRM-028, will be exempt from the subsections of the Privacy Act listed below for the reasons set forth in the following text. Information in this system of records relates to matters of law enforcement, and the exemptions are necessary to avoid interference with law enforcement responsibilities and to protect the privacy of third parties.
