As submitted by one of our members:


FYI: This information originally was received from an LASD source and is for active and retired law enforcement only. 


This is for anyone who has a Facebook account. If you have family, relatives or friends who are currently part of law enforcement, feel free to share this with them. 


On October 28, 2010, A DUI traffic stop by Maricopa County Sheriff's Office uncovered a CD containing multiple photographs and names of over 30 Phoenix PD Officers and civilian employees. All of the names and photographs found on the CD were obtained from Facebook and reveal the identity of several patrol and undercover officers. All officers who were identified on the CD have been notified. It is unknown how many more CDs (if any) may be circulating. 

Law enforcement officers (including retired officers) should use good judgment when posting personal information about themselves on social networks. For instance, if you have worked or are currently working in an undercover capacity, it is recommended that you do not post photographs of yourself with your personal information on social networking sites. 


You can take the suggested measures to safeguard your information: Secure all photographs and other information by customizing your privacy settings to control who may access your information and photographs. Set your privacy setting to "friends only".  Make your profile photo something that is obscure or known only to those who know you. Remember, anyone can see your profile picture. Stay current on security changes and updates on social networking sites, as they are constantly changing.

Mike, a bit of advice.  You may want to post an introduction for more responses.

Hmm...anybody else wonder how in the world this alleged CD was discovered during a DUI stop? Unless it was sitting in plain view on the dash and labeled "Personal information about cops on FB", I don't see how it would turn up. Does anybody else regularly search a vehicle and view any and all CD/DVD's they find on a traffic stop?


Still a good reminder to be wary of what kind of info is being shared on the Internet.

I agree with this post, is easy to get information about persons in facebook, when I want to know more about people I google it first and go to facebook to get pictures and more info.


 


is unvelibable the kind of info you can find, some officers put they work in law enforcement, rank and unit, that is the first thing that you do not do but everybody is different.
