NEW YORK — More than a half dozen New York based businesses have partnered with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in New York Thursday by joining the agency’s employment compliance program IMAGE, or “ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers.”

“It is an honor to become a partner of the ICE IMAGE Program. As a company whose technologies are used by Department of Defense (DOD) and non-DOD federal agencies to establish traceability, authenticate products and enable supply chain security, the discipline under the certification criteria is especially meaningful to us and to our customers,” said Janice Meraglia, VP of Government and Military Programs for Applied DNA Sciences, Inc.
