Now Online, Searchable Database: Online Detainee Locator System from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)

From a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Announcement:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced today {July 23, 2010] the launch of ICE's Online Detainee Locator System (ODLS), a public, Internet-based tool designed to assist family members, attorneys and other interested parties in locating detained aliens in ICE custody. The creation and implementation of the ODLS is a concrete example of ICE's commitment to detention reform.

The ODLS is located on ICE's public website, http://www.ice.gov, and provides users with information on the location of the detention facility where a particular individual is being held, a phone number to the facility and contact information for the ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations office in the region where the facility is located. A brochure explaining how to use the ODLS is also available on the website in the following languages: English, Spanish, French, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic and Somali.

"The ODLS is an easy, accessible tool that allows family members and counsel to locate an individual in ICE custody in a matter of minutes," said Phyllis Coven, acting director of ICE's Office of Detention Policy and Planning. "ICE is making great strides in our effort to translate the principles of reform into innovative, practical and timely solutions."

ODLS users will be able to locate detained aliens by two different search methods. First, users can search by entering an individual's alien registration number, also known as their "A" number, and their country of birth. Users can also search by entering an individual's first name, last name, country of birth and date of birth.
