Overview Edit

The ENFORCE Apprehension Booking Module (EABM) is

an event-based application that integrates and supports law enforcement arrest and booking functions including apprehension processing, fingerprint and photographic identification, recording of allegations and charges, preparation and printing of appropriate forms, and interfaces with other applications. ICE and CBP use the EABM to track the apprehension of individuals (both non-U.S. Citizens and U.S. Citizens) who have been arrested by ICE or CBP for violating U.S. customs and other federal criminal laws, and/or violations of administrative or criminal provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act.[1]
The EABM also allows for the creation of records about individuals who are either the subject of ongoing criminal investigations or who are amenable to removal proceedings but are not in the custody of DHS. These subject records may be used as part of an ongoing investigation and sometimes are used to place immigration detainers when DHS is seeking custody of an alien who is already in the custody of another federal, state, or local law enforcement agency. EABM also receives information from the U.S. Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US-VISIT) program's IDENT biometric database, such as the subject's Fingerprint Identification Number and photographs. EID uses the Fingerprint Identification Number to identify EID records that may be about the same person, enabling the user to determine whether to link the records. EABM is also used to record biographical information of those prisoners that ICE holds for the U.S. Marshals Service under an interagency agreement.[2]
