SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
In accordance with the Privacy Act of
1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Department of
the Treasury proposes to modify the
Treasury systems of records notices, as
identified below, to include one new
routine use permitting disclosure to the
United States Department of Justice for
purposes of the National Law
Enforcement Accountability Database
(the ‘‘NLEAD’’). On May 25, 2022, the
President issued Executive Order 14074,
Advancing Effective, Accountable
Policing and Criminal Justice Practices
to Enhance Public Trust and Public
Safety (the ‘‘Executive Order’’). Section
5 of the Executive Order directs the
Attorney General to establish the
National Law Enforcement
Accountability Database as ‘‘a
centralized repository of official records
documenting instances of law
enforcement officer misconduct as well
as commendations and awards.’’ As
required by the Executive Order, in
developing the NLEAD, the Department
of Justice regularly consulted with other
federal law enforcement agencies, at
both leadership and staff levels. This
new routine use authorizes disclosure to
the Department of Justice pursuant to
the Executive Order.
Treasury has provided a report of this
system of records to the House
Committee on Oversight and
Accountability, the Senate Committee
on Homeland Security and
Governmental Affairs, and OMB,
pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) and OMB
Circular A–108, ‘‘Federal Agency
Responsibilities for Review, Reporting,
and Publication under the Privacy Act,’’
dated December 23, 2016.
Ryan Law,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Privacy,
Transparency, and Records.
The NLEAD routine use is being
added to the following Treasury systems
of records notices. The addition of this
new routine use disclosure to each of
the SORNs referenced below is
consistent with the purpose(s) for which
the information was collected because
these SORNs already include a routine
use for making similar disclosures
directly to federal agencies upon
request.
