Miami-Dade Officers Have Private Info Hacked, Released on Website

March 07, 2016  | 

Miami-Dade County is investigating a breach of privacy that has affected more than 1,000 police officers and other county employees.

The personal information of police officers, lawyers and judges in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties was made public through a South Florida website last month, and employees in Miami-Dade were only alerted of the breach this week, according to John Rivera, president of the Miami-Dade Police Benevolent Association.

“When we made some inquiries we found out it was true and we were equally upset that the county had not informed the members of the police department so that they could take protective measures,” Rivera told the Miami Herald.

Florida statutes protect the home addresses of police officers, prosecutors and judges, and it’s a misdemeanor to publish that information with malicious intent.

Perhaps the data should have been encrypted as this event could have been easily prevent. Maybe LE should see this technology as something that is necessary rather than viewing it as an impediment.

gosh, Lenard I actually agree with you this time, thats a first!. Mainly because your statement is common sense and something you might know about, rather then when you make comments about LE in general which you obviously do not have value about.
