ICE Access

The ICE Agreements of Cooperation in Communities to Enhance Safety and Security (ICE ACCESS) initiative was developed to promote the various programs or tools that ICE offers to assist state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies.

Under this initiative, ICE works closely with other law enforcement agencies to identify an agency’s specific needs or the local community’s unique concerns.

In developing an ICE ACCESS partnership agreement, ICE representatives will meet with the requesting agency to assess local needs and draft appropriate plans of action. Based upon these assessments, ICE and the requesting agency will determine which type of partnership is most beneficial and sustainable before entering into an official agreement.

For more information on the law enforcement programs offered under ICE ACCESS, contact your nearest ICE office or request an information packet online.
