When James Craig assumed command of the Detroit Police Department, he promised it would be a transparent organization—but a recent mishap involving the disclosure of female officers' bra sizes probably wasn't what he had in mind.

A police executive in charge of dispersing body armor to officers accidentally forwarded an email to subordinates that contained personal information including height, weight—and cup sizes.

The mistake happened three weeks ago when Cmdr. Dwayne Love received a four-page email from the vest manufacturer indicating the vests were ready, Assistant Police Chief James White said.

With all of the problems in Detroit I cannot believe that this made the news.

I agree, there is alot more important things than this. I concede it could cause a little embaresment for some female officers, but face it we are cops, we find things funny that the public wouldn't and this is why we have to roll with the petty crap. Lets worry more about everyone going home safe at the end of shift, enjoying your family and loved ones and putting away the bad guys. Brs sizes instead of home addresses, as they released in my state several years ago, no comparison.

Ok, FEMALE Officers, yes height, weight, and bra/cup size may be a little embarrassing, but didn't the MALE Officers also have their height and weight on the sheets minus the bra/cup size? What's the big deal - you females are probably in better shape than a lot of the males! Be proud of who you are and don't let this stuff get to you, mistakes do happen because no one is perfect. (And yes, I'm female, 5'7" 253# and 44DD!!).

So whats the big deal, be happy with God, gave you. You can be sexy at any size.

This could be embarrassing to guys with man boobs. Otherwise this is a minor problem for most people but it should be confidential information and any accidental release of personal information does call for disciplinary action for the violator. If the release included names of the officers this could spur sexual harassment within the ranks. Male cops are mentally like 12 year old boys most of the time.
